Abstract:

APPLIED RESEARCH CORPORATION (ARC) PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NEW CLASS OF SOLID-STATE PARTICLE/RADIATION DETECTORS. USING CRYOGENIC TECHNIQUES, ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENTS IN THE MAXIMUM TOLERABLE RADIATION DOSE ARE EXPECTED; A RADIATION DOSE OF 100 MEGARAD SHOULD NOT DESTROY THE DETECTOR CAPABILITIES. THE DETECTOR PROVIDES EXCELLENT PROTECTION AGAINST ELECTROMAGNETIC AND RADIATION EFFECTS WHICH MIGHT BE ENCOUNTERED IN AN UNDERGROUND NUCLEAR TEST. THE DETECTOR CAN CONSIST OF A LARGE ARRAY (10[5]X10[5]) OF SUPERCONDUCTING SENSORS AND COULD PROVIDE SPATIAL RESOLUTION OF A FEW MICRONS WITH A REASONABLE NUMBER OF READ-OUT CHANNELS. SUBNANOSECOND TIME RESOLUTION IS POSSIBLE. IT CAN BE ENGINEERED AS DETECTORS FOR X-RAY, GAMMA AND NEUTRON RADIATION.
