Pb-Qdot Direct Gamma Detectors

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$1,862,061.00
Agency:
HHS
Principal Investigator:
Irving Weinberg – 301-346-7944
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A critical property of radiation detectors is stopping power, which describes the efficiency of the detector in collecting radiation. In order to minimize patient dose, it is helpful to increase stopping power, since stopping power is inversely related to the… More
