Leading the field since 1983…
Since 1983 we have become a leading manufacturer of silicon detectors for the High Energy Physics, Space, Nuclear and Medical Research, OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) markets. We specialise in producing custom AC and DC silicon and diamond detectors
Our Core Departments
There are countless reasons why our service is better than the rest.
Mainly double-sided silicon microstrip detectors utilising N-Type and P-Type silicon
Wide range of projects including R3B/ ISOLDE/ MINOS/ HIRA/ BELLE2/ GASPARD and more recently for CLIC/ LHCb/ ATLASView More
Wide range of space-qualified detectors, ranging from 9um to 1500 um thickness
NASA/ ESA/ JAXA. Project examples include JUICE, HNX, SOLAR PROBE PLUS, RBSP, GOES-R for NOAA and CUBESATS
Single-crystal detectors, offering full 12 months warranty,
Unique properties include picosecond response times, suitable for high temperature operation, radiation hard and ultra low leakage
Mass production of standard catalogue designs, delivered at competitive prices and just in time.
Examples include silicon gamma transient detectors / proton monitors / back scattered electron detectors for electron microscopes

Most of our designs are custom-based. We do also have several ‘standard catalogue’ products which meet our customers’ requirements. Catalogue detectors generally have a range of options including dead layer window (implant/window types), metal coverage, silicon / diamond thickness and package type.
We sometimes have production overruns, creating excess stocks.

GOES-R Successfully LaunchesNovember 2016
Micron Semiconductor Ltd is proud to have built the detectors used in the GOES-R mission for critical weather forecasting and warning applications.
Diamond for Fast Neutron DetectionSuccessful conclusion of our R&D programme
Micron Semiconductor Ltd produces Diamond with Fast Neutron Detection - Deuterium Tritium Source 14.1 MeV
LHC pushes limits of performance-
The Large Hadron Collider’s (LHC) with Micron Semiconductor Ltd detectors, performance continued to surpass expectations, when it achieved 2220 proton bunches in each of its counter-rotating beams.
It has been a very pleasant experience in dealing with all of you. I have no hesitation to recommend Micron Semiconductor to all our collaborators, and I am looking forward to do business with you again in the future.Fan LEI, Ph.D. RadMod Research Camberley, Surrey, UK
I am very happy with Micron and remain an extremely satisfied customer. I would rate Micron overall as “Excellent”.Shri Kanekal, NASA/GSFC
