Data acquired on the ground during the course of a pre-flight radiation test campaign on a dedicated test-bench. Shown here are data (co-added over a number of runs) containing 5 lines of charge injection followed by ~ 5 s of acquisition of the release trail. The red datapoints correspond to data acquired on a section of the detector which has been irradiated to a NIEL of 4 × 109 p+/ cm2 of 10 MeV equivalent protons. The black curve shows data acquired on an unirradiated portion of the device for control purposes. The trapping of charge from the injected lines (the FPR) is not noticeable by eye for the black curve, but is very apparent for the data acquired from the irradiated region (see zoom in inset). Similarly, there is a small amount of release on the line after injection for the black curve, but a very clear and extended release trail in the red curve.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
