  • Kapton – polyamide foil


In this paper we present the electro-optical performances of one dimensional (1D) a-Si:H thin film position detectors deposited on polymeric substrates (Kapton – polyamide foil), compatible with all the steps of the deposition of the materials that constitute the final device as well as with the photolithographic techniques used. Apart from that, we also demonstrate that when improved interfaces are produced the back metal contact does not need to cover the entire back area of the sensor to produce the required reference equipotential.
