The major types of ionizing radiation detectors, their advantages and disadvantages have been analyzed. The application of ZnSe-based semiconductor detector in high temperature environment has been substantiated. Original ZnSe-based detectors and a double-chip design for registration of X- and gamma rays have been used in a broad energy range. Based on the manufactured simulator, the feasibility of gamma quanta recording by a high-resistance ZnSe-based detector operating in perpulse mode has been proved.

Keywords: charge sensitive amplifier, gamma radiation, semiconductor detector, X-radiation, ZnSe single crystal
