Preliminary radiation tests of hydrogenated amorphous silicon n–i–p photodiodes deposited on a coated glass substrate are presented in this paper. These tests have been performed using a 24 GeV proton beam. We report results on the fluence dependence of the diode dark current and of the signal induced by a proton spill.
