  1. High Resolution, Room Temperature Semiconductor Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05006

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Prevention of the spread of nuclear weapons has reached a state of heightened urgency in recent years, especially since the events on September 11, 2001 and its aftermath. Gamma ray spectrometers are an important tool in checking the proliferation of the nuclear weapons. Important re ...

  2. Low-cost Individual Digital Dosimeters using Solid State Photomultipliers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05007

    U.S. forces working in low-level radiation environments have unsatisfactory choices for monitoring radiation exposure. A solid-state photomultiplier (SSPM) uses an array of silicon based avalanche photodiodes (APD) to collect light and produce a signal proportional to the amount of light collected. The ability to produce arrays of APD’s in a CMOS (Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) envir ...

  3. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

  4. Title: Chemical/Biological Agent Standoff Detection

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05004

    Spectral Sciences, Inc. proposes an innovative standoff detection system for remote detection and mapping of chemicals agents and other hazardous materials. The Adaptive Multiplex Spectrometer (AMS) is a general-purpose passive infrared sensor whose characteristics can be set on-the-fly in software. As a spectrograph, it would provide performance similar to the SORAD. It also can perform 1-D spec ...

  6. High Quantum Efficiency Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma Ray Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB062007

    Agiltron proposes to demonstrate a breakthrough detector for readout of scintillators for gamma ray detection that overcomes the quantum efficiency and high voltage limits of current PMTs and APDs. It holds the promise to improve the current scintillator detector resolution by at least 30 percent without the need for a high voltage power supply, and can be fabricated at a low cost. This new photom ...

  9. LIBS: An Alternative to Commercial Instruments for Measurement of Lead

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Radioactive materials are used in commercially important analytical instruments because of the ability of ionizing radiation to excite characteristic x-ray fluorescence lines. Radiation sources are often the most practical method for portable instruments, such as analyzers for lead paint in homes. There are many other applications, including the rapidly growing area of RoHS manufacturing. This eff ...
