Primary calibration of photodiodes with monochromatic X‐ray beams using an electrical‐substitution radiometer

Abstract

The electrical-substitution cryogenic detector BOLometer for Use in the range of X-rays (BOLUX), which was developed some years ago at CEA/DAM, has been set up and restarted now at LNHB. It has been used for the primary measurement of the intensity (total energy per unit time) of monochromatic synchrotron beams in the energy range from 3 to 30 keV. These well-determined photon beams have been employed for the efficiency calibration of two photodiodes in terms of current induced per unit optical power at different photon energies. In a final step, we explored the possibility to use these primary calibrated photodiodes to determine the efficiency curve of an energy dispersive spectrometer based on a semiconductor detector (Silicon Drift Detector) using less intense monochromatic photon fluxes. The characteristics of the radiometer BOLUX and its principle of operation are described, and the measurements carried out at the synchrotron beamline are presented, including the determination of the beams' intensities, the direct calibration of photodiodes with respect to BOLUX and the use of one of those photodiodes as a standard transfer for the calibration of the SDD.
