Abstract

Solid state detectors have been extensively employed in the last twenty years in several fields of research, in particular in low energy nuclear physics and nuclear spectroscopy1. The reason for their large success being mainly their reliability and their operability as proportional counters. More recently silicon detectors have found applications in high energy physics experiments2, firstly in the study of nuclear coherent-incoherent reactions on silicon nuclei induced by high energy hadrons, later in a more original way, in a photoproduction experiment3.
