    Abstract

    The characteristics of a detector fabricated using piezoelectric lead zirconate titanate (PZT) were studied by irradiating it with a 400 MeV/n xenon (Xe) beam while changing the beam flux intensity. The largest output signal was observed from the detector when the beam power per unit time was estimated to be largest. It was also found that the sensitivity per Xe ion of the detector seemed to be higher with decreasing the amount of the Xe ion flux within the limits of the experimental conditions.
