Paper Abstract

The paper presents a two methods for simulation of signal induction in the detector. First method base on carriers tracks calculation while second method include simplification of accelerating calculations. Calculation has been performed for Caliste-SO detector, which is cadmium telluride X-ray detector. This detector will be used in the Solar Orbiter/STIX instrument. Solar Orbiter is M-class mission of the ESA's programme Cosmic Vision 2015-2025, which is conducted in collaboration with NASA. It will be launched in October 2018. STIX (Spectrometer/Telescope for Imaging X-Rays) is X-ray telescope and spectrometer and will observe solar X-ray emission from 4 to 150 keV using Fourier-imaging technique. Deep space condition can influence significantly the detector parameters. Tools for detectors behaviour analysis are needed to understand how this harsh radiation environment can influence detector quantum efficiency.
