Large-Area Silicon Detectors for the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) Solar Isotope Spectrometer (SIS)


Extensive measurements were made of the thicknesses and dead-layers of the large-area, highpurity silicon detectors used for the Solar Isotope Spectrometer (SIS), an instrument to be launched on the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft. Tests using accelerated beams of heavy nuclei were also carried out to characterize the completed instrument.
