Silicon sensors are commonly used in a broad range of energy levels, from low-energy applications to high-energy applications.
The suitability of silicon sensors for specific energy ranges and radiation types depends on the selected Si material, design, process and thickness.
Here are some typical energy ranges and applications where silicon sensors are employed:
- Low-Energy X-rays: Silicon sensors can effectively detect and measure X-rays in the low-energy range up to 20 keV. This includes applications such as X-ray imaging, X-ray spectroscopy, and low-energy gamma-ray detection
