    Energy resolution measurements of ultraviolet-sensitive windowless silicon p-i-n photodiodes were carried out with alpha rays. A resolution of 12.6 keV in full width at half maximum for 5.486 MeV was achieved. The ultraviolet-sensitive silicon p- i-n photodiodes were found to be suitable to alpha-ray spectrometry.
