Experimental setup to monitor non-destructive single events triggered by ionizing radiation in power devices

Share

In this presentation, a dedicated experimental setup is presented for the acquisition of single ionization events generated in power

devices by ionizing radiation. This spectrometer chain is designed to be used for long-term experiments, where

devices are submitted to the natural terrestrial cosmic radiation (TCR), for TCR characterizations, as well as in

conjunction with radioactive sources. Every single ionization event that generates in the device charge pulses

ranging from 1 fC up to 2 pC is recorded together with its time stamp and waveform. Original noise filtering and

pile-up rejection strategies are implemented. The dedicated hardware and software are described in very detail

in conjunction with the main operating procedures.
