A radiation detector composed of fourteen lead zirconate titanate (PZT) disks was studied by directly irradiating it using a 400 MeV/n xenon beam while changing the beam intensity and beam pulse duration. The results obtained indicated that the sensitivity of the detector per xenon ion was explicitly dependent on the beam pulse duration. Comparing the sensitivity among PZT detectors with one, fourteen and one hundred layers, it was also found that the sensitivity of the fourteen-layered detector was highest under the experimental conditions.
