Title: Method of manufacturing an ionizing radiation detection device

Abstract: A method for manufacturing an ionizing radiation detection device having a block of a semiconductor material adapted to undergo local separations of charges between positive and negative charges under the effect of ionizing radiation. The device including a first series of at least two collecting electrodes formed on the surface of the semiconductor block, and a second series of at least two non-collecting electrodes formed on a support and separated from the semiconductor block by an insulating layer. During processing, after forming the insulating layer on the support so as to cover the non-collecting electrodes, the block of semiconductor material bearing the collecting electrodes and the support bearing the non-collecting electrodes and the insulating layer are assembled.
