Abstract
The response of the Timepix detector to neon ions with kinetic energy 77 and 158.4 MeV has been studied at the cyclotron U-400M of the Laboratory of Nuclear Reaction. Sensors produced from gallium arsenide compensated by chromium (GaAs:Cr) and from silicon (Si) are used for these measurements. While in Timepix detector with Si sensor the well-known so-called "volcano effect" observed, in Timepix detector with GaAs:Cr sensor such effect was completely absent.
In the report the behaviour of the Timepix detector with GaAs:Cr sensor under irradiation with heavy ions are described in comparison with the detector based on Si sensor. Also the reason for absence of "volcano effect" in GaAs:Cr detector is proposed.
