Abstract

We detail our new results from testing an array of 15-mm long virtual Frisch-grid CdZnTe detectors with a cathode signal readout-scheme intended to improve spectral response by correcting for electron trapping. We designed a novel electrode configuration for these long-drift detectors that ensures an energy resolution close to the statistical limit, and high detection efficiency. However, in reality, the quality of the crystals limits the performance of this type of device. Here, we describe the characterization of the array, show our preliminary results obtained with gamma-ray sources, and expound on their relation to our material-characterization data.
