Semiconductor detectors for PIXE applications were fabricated using TlBr crystals. The TlBr detectors had a multiple-electrode detector design to minimize the pulse-height loss due to hole trapping. Electrodes containing thallium metal were employed for the TlBr detectors to suppress the polarization phenomena. Energy resolutions of 2.4, 3.3, and 3.8 keV FWHM for 5.9, 22.1, and 59.5 keV photons, respectively, were obtained for a TlBr detector operating at −50 °C.
