Abstract
An analysis of the charge collection process induced by focused MeV ion bea ms in semiconductor devices is presented. It is based on the extended Shock ley-Ramo theorem that provides a rigorous mathematical tool for the calcula tion of the induced charge and current under the assumption of a quasi-stea dy-state operation of the semiconductor device. A complete description of t he theory and underlying assumption is given as well as a simple applicatio n of the method aimed to evaluate the main transport properties of fully de pleted semiconductors from the analysis of frontal and lateral ion beam ind uced charge collection (IBICC) measurements.
