Abstract

The production of equilibrium carriers (electrons and holes) in semiconductors and in dielectrics by charged particles and by high energy γ-rays is of great importance because of the conversion of the energy of those particles into light and electrical energy and because of the possiblity of using semiconductors for detection and determination of the type of radiation, and of the energy of charged particles (or of γ-rays) in dosimetry.
