Leading the field since 1983…
Since 1983 we have become a leading manufacturer of silicon and diamond detectors for the High Energy Physics, Space, Nuclear and Medical Research, OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) markets. We specialise in producing custom AC and DC single and double sided silicon along with polycrystal and single crystal 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.

Solar Orbiter: Closest ever pictures taken of Sun with Micron's detectors board17th July 2020
New pictures of the Sun taken just 77 million km (48 million miles) from its surface are the closest ever acquired by cameras.
They come from the European Space Agency's Solar Orbiter (SolO) probe, which was launched earlier this year with Micron Semiconductor Ltd designed and built detectors.
Among the UK-assembled craft's novel insights are views of mini-flares dubbed ``camp fires``
