Micron Semiconductor

What? Micron Semiconductor designs and manufacture custom radiation sensors based on silicon and CVD diamond.

What, exactly? Semiconductor materials are sensitive to incoming radiations, such as controlled beams (think CERN, synchrotrons) or ambient (think space). Different semiconductors show different properties. Silicon is already widely used and CVD diamond is proving an adequate solution in more challenging environments.
