Standard Test Procedures for High-Purity Germanium Crystals for Radiation Detectors
|Publication Date:||1 January 1993|
This standard applies to the measurement of bulk properties of high-purity germanium as they relate to the fabrication and performance of germanium detectors for gamma rays and x rays. Such germanium is monocrystalline and has a net concentration of fewer than 1011 electrically active impurity centers per cm3 , usually on the order of 1010 cm-3. Test and measurement procedures for fabricated germanium detectors are given in IEEE Std 325-1986 and IEEE Std 759-1984.
