  3. CNT-Based Gas Ionizer to Replace Radioactive Sources

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: HSB061010

    In the recent past, government agencies from the US and other foreign countries have recognized the problem of orphaned radioactive sources worldwide. Such sources pose a security risk in the form of potential material for a ¿dirty bomb¿ or other illicit applications. We propose to replace Ni-63 beta emitters with a carbon nanotube based electric field ionization source. This CNT-based ionizatio ...
