Description

We are developing monolithic pixel detectors using a Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology for X-ray and charged particle applications. It is based on a 0.2 um CMOS fully-depleted (FD-)SOI process of Lapis Semiconductor Co. Ltd. The SOI wafer consists of a thick, high-resistivity substrate for the sensing part and a thin Si layer for CMOS circuits. To overcome back-gate effect affected by higher back bias voltages, we have successfully introduced buried-well structures. Furthermore, to reduce crosstalk between the sensing node and the pixel circuit, we have developed a double-SOI wafer process. Newly introduced middle Si layer also works as a compensation electrode to the electric field generated by oxide trapped holes created by radiations. Here we present recent progress and test results of the SOI monolithic pixel detectors.
