Smartphone Enabled Spectroscopic Gamma-Neutron Radiation Sensor
RMD is proposing the development of Smart-Phone Enabled Radionuclide Identifier (SERI), a new detection instrument designed to take full
advantage of smartphone / tablet technology. The hardware platform will include a new advanced scintillator that will provide both high gamma-ray
efficiency and spectroscopic performance, but also provide high neutron efficiency. The unit will communicate wirelessly to a smartphone / tablet,
providing an interface for isotope ID and reach-back functionality. The early stage research is to optimally design the hardware components while
moderating cost. Additionally, the software architecture of the accompanying application will be designed, including evaluation of key algorithms needed to determine isotope identity. The final product will be an instrument primarily geared to first responders. It will be compact, easily transportable and possibly worn, battery operable and rugged. Furthermore, with the novel detector design, it will provide a completely new level of performance.
