This activity shall characterise the dark current increase in Silicon detectors as a function of micro-meteoroid properties. The dark current increase shall be characterised with detectors representative in detector entrance window and Silicon bulk properties to the detectors used on the ATHENA WFI instrument. No further representativeness in terms of detectortechnology is anticipated. The following properties shall be characterised:1) Dark current as function of temperature prior and post impact2) Dark current generation as function of distance from impact site3) Inspection and characterisation of physical extent of micro-meteoroid damage using electron microscopyThe aforementioned properties shall be characterised as a function of the following micro-meteoroid propertiesA)Particle size (at least 4 TBD sizes)B) Particle speed (at least 4 TBD speeds)C) Particle composition (at least 2 TBD compositions
