Paper Abstract

Software for modeling x-ray signals, as detected by a semiconductor radiation detector, has been developed. We model a generic signal generation/collection/processing sequence using Monte Carlo and finite-element analysis software. The suggested framework will allow one to simulate x-ray pulse-height spectrum, various triggering schemes, and can be used for detector optimization.
