Title: High Efficiency Digital X-ray Detector
Agency: NASA
Contract: NAS5-01169
Award Amount: $70,000.00
 

Abstract:

Several technologies are under development to replace conventional x-ray film with digital converters. More of the penetrating x-rays are absorbed into the detector because of its thicker stopping material. Current x-ray conversion materials are limited because of their relatively low atomic number and density. The high atomic number and high density of mercuric iodide can offer superior stopping power and improved spatial resolution. The goal of this application is to evaluate the feasibility of a deposition method for manufacturing thin polycrystalline layers of mercuric iodide for use as a x-ray converter for radiography.
