20, we have fed our system with a charge of 1 fC, obtaining and output peak of 50 mV, hence the gain is 50 mV/fC. In some cases, the gain is also expressed in Volt per electron, although this terminology is less common in the radiation detector community. Knowing that 1 fC is the charge of 6250 electrons, we can thus also say that the gain is 8 µ V/electron. In a linear system, the gain should be chosen so that the maximum signal of interest brings the amplifier at the onset of saturation. 1 V.
This configuration is used to calculate the weighting field Ew , which determines how a moving charge couples to the specific terminal which has been kept at 1 V. 2) v = µ Ed where µ is the carrier mobility. The analytical calculation of ik (t) is straightforward for a simple sensor like the one of Fig. 1 a). Suppose in fact that L is the distance between the two electrodes. If a bias voltage VB is applied, the drift field inside the volume is uniform and equal to VB /L. The weighting field is obtained by applying on the electrode of interest (usually, the one connected to the front-end electronics) a unit potential, so it is simply given by 1/L.
However, as discussed above, the charge generation process in the sensor is affected by statistical fluctuations, so the maximum signal to be treated may well exceed the value of 10 fC. Conversely, in a segmented detector the charge can be collected by more electrodes, which reduces the minimum signal to be measured. 3 fC up to 30 ÷ 40 fC and the appropriate gain would hence be around 50 mV/fC. When choosing the gain, one must always cross-check that the expected fluctuations of the input signals have been properly incorporated in the specifications.
