ABSTRACT

The development of photon-counting pixel detectors for spectral X-ray imaging is in its prime. Optimization of the pixel geometry is crucial for obtaining a reliable spectral response in each pixel element with the least distortion due to the fundamental X-ray interactions and the electrical properties. We investigated the fundamental electrical properties in semiconductor pixel detectors with respect to normalized pixel geometries: the aspect ratio (the length ratio between pixel pitch and detector thickness) and the fill factor (the area ratio between the pixel electrode and pixel extent). For various geometries, we performed three-dimensional field simulations by using a commercial finite element analysis code and obtained the potential and the field distributions. Based on the weighting potential distributions, we calculated the net charge buildup for various interaction positions within the boundary of the pixel, where a single electron-hole pair starts to drift, by assuming no charge trapping and no diffusion. For upper-limit performance, a small aspect-ratio, fill-factor design would be preferable for fast, reliable signal measurements. The results and the methodology from this study can offer insight into the optimal design of pixel geometries in photon-counting pixel detectors. More... »
