Abstract

Two-dimensional arrays of amorphous silicon photodiodes can be used as position-sensitive radiation detectors when they are coupled to an appropriate phosphor. We have developed signal readout schemes from amorphous silicon photodiode arrays utilizing one or two switching diodes attached to each pixel photodiode. Individual cells and prototype arrays of amorphous silicon photodiodes with single- and double-diode switching readout were fabricated and tested. A charge storage time and a readout time were measured. The measurement results were analyzed by simple circuit theory.
