The characteristics of radiation detector fabricated by stacking some piezoelectric lead zirconate titanate (PZT) elements were studied by irradiating it with a 400 MeV/n xenon (Xe) beam. Comparing between observed results from the detector and calculation results using Bethe-Bloch formula, it was found that the amplitude of the output voltage observed was dependent on the amount of ionization energy loss of Xe ion with PZT.
