SBC: AGILTRON, INC. Topic: DTRA08005
Gamma radiation detection has traditionally required single crystal materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. Agiltron has developed a new class of scintillator materials based on composites containing nanoparticles. These so-called nanocomposites exhibit radiation detection characteristics superior to currently available single crystal scintillators. In Phase I ...SBIR Phase II 2009 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. Topic: DTRA082007
Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5x5 cm2, right cylinder, ...SBIR Phase I 2009 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
