Paper Abstract

In this paper, we investigated electrical characteristics of the X-ray detector of mercuric iodide (HgI2) film fabricated by PIB(Particle-In-Binder) Method with thicknesses ranging from approximately 200μm to 240μm. In the present study, using I-V measurements, their electrical properties such as leakage current, X-ray sensitivity, and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR),were investigated. The results of our study can be useful in the future design and optimization of direct active-matrix flat-panel detectors (AMFPD) for various digital X-ray imaging modalities.
