Perez, M., J. Lipovetzky, M. Sofo Haro, I. Sidelnik, J. J. Blostein, F. Alcalde Bessia, and M. Gomez Berisso. "Particle detection and classification using commercial off the shelf CMOS image sensors." Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors and Associated Equipment 827 (2016): 171–180.
In this paper we analyse the response of two different Commercial Off The shelf CMOS image sensors as particle detectors. Sensors were irradiated using X-ray photons, gamma photons, beta particles and alpha particles from diverse sources. The amount of charge produced by different particles, and the size of the spot registered on the sensor are compared, and analysed by an algorithm to classify them. For a known incident energy spectrum, the employed sensors provide a dose resolution lower than microGray, showing their potentials in radioprotection, area monitoring, or medical applications.
