- The development and fabrication of specialized silicon detectors have long been an integral part of the LBL experimental capabilities. This silicon detector expertise utilizes two basic technologies, oxide-passivated diffused junction and lithium-ion drift. These technologies are complementary, with detectors of 10 μm to 500 μm thick fabricated using the diffused junction process and detectors 500 μm to 10,000 μm using the lithium-ion technique. Particle spectroscopy applications at LBL typically employ a thin diffused, dE/dx, detector followed by a thick lithium drifted, E, detector. Novel position-sensitive dE/dx and E detectors recently employed in two separate experiments conducted at LBL are described. In addition, the requirements for employing thick lithium drifted detectors in an ongoing LBL double beta decay experiment and a LBL dark matter search are also presented. 22 refs.
