Award List:

NEW FAST HEAVY YAP SCINTILLATOR BASED PARTICLE DETECTORS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Michail V. Korzhik
Award Amount: $65,000.00
Abstract:
Researchers are developing nuclear/particle detectors using new fast heavy inorganic scintillators. these materials are of two classes: (1) bright cerium-activated crystals - yap, gao, and gso - which could displace thallium doped sodium and cesium iodide in certain applications. the current yap… More

Neutron Radiography with Inorganic Scintillation Detectors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Dr. W. Peter Trower , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
We propose here to evaluate a variety of inorganic scintillators, including sodium iodide and bismuth germanate, for use in energy-sensitive neutron detectors. We will couple these crystals to photomultiplier tubes and measure the prompt response to inelastic neutron reactions with the scintillator… More
