Silicon radiation sensors

Silicon radiation sensors are used for detecting ionizing particles and light. The department of Microsystems and Nanotechnology at SINTEF manufactures silicon radiation sensors adapted to customer specifications. Our services range from pure prototype development and device optimization to production processes. We offer foundry services as well as customer specific fabrication. Through in-house design and processing facilities, we offer flexibility at every level, from initial design to final detectors. At MiNaLab, we have long experience with different types of silicon radiation sensors, roughly divided into five categories.
  • Pad-, microstrip- and pixel detectors
  • Drift Chambers (only customer specified)
  • Optical detectors
  • Avalanche photo diodes (only customer specified)
  • 3D detectors
