Etude des performances spectrometriques des detecteurs gamma CdTe CdZnTe monolithiques

Abstract : Pixelated monolithic CdTe / CdZnTe semiconductor gamma ray detectors are brought to replace scintillation detectors for medical applications, notably for single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT). In addition to compactness, they present better spectrometric performances: energy resolution, detection efficiency, and spatial resolution. Moreover, the photons depth of interaction in the crystal can be measured.
This work aimed in studying experimentally and by simulation the correlations between anodes pitch, material physic properties (resistivity and electron transport properties), and detectors spectrometric performances. We have compared several methods of measuring the photon interaction depth, and have obtained an energy resolution ranging from 1.7% to 7% at 122 keV, according to material, for 5 mm thick detectors. Charge sharing between adjacent anodes has been studied and a measured data processing is proposed.
