Abstract

A revised model is described for computing the nonlinear response of low-background Si:X photoconductive detectors to a given flux variation. The model gives results in good agreement with measured responses to large-amplitude sine wave and square wave flux modulations and implies a simple measurement procedure for calibrating a detector's nonlinear response.
