he direct deposition of polycrystalline semiconductor HgI2 detectors on pre-deposited specially designed pixel electrodes is described, using two methods, the hot wall vapor deposition, HWVD, and thick film screen print (SP) methods. Some characterization results of the HgI2 material used to fabricate the detectors are described. The pre-deposited substrate is made by standard hybrid technology. The electrode pattern is a 16*16 pixel square pattern each with a size of 1.48 mm and with 0.1 mm spacing; the total area covered by the pixels is (25.28 mm)(2) = 639.078 mm(2). In order to fan out the pixels to read-out electronics, holes were made through the ceramic thickness and connecting lines were drawn on the opposite side of the ceramic alumina substrate, where complicated patterns can be produced. The pixel detector is tested with beta particles, and data showing the leakage current vs, bias, are given showing a resistivity of about 2*10(12) ohm cm. The current and the average charge signal are reported for three different HgI2 pixel detectors. The signal for one of the detectors is about 1100 electrons at 800 V bias voltage and for the second detector, the resistivity is in the same order of magnitude and the charge collection is somewhat better, reaching 1600 electrons at 700 V. One of the detectors was connected to a second hybrid designed for mounting of 8 CASTOR 1.0 chips. CASTOR 1.0 is a VLSI circuit designed for imaging and the results are being evaluated.
