  1. Improvements in Scintillation Technology for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07004

    High-resolution scintillation crystals and crystal arrays are important components of current and future handheld and arrayed detectors (used for DOD/DTRA applications), and scintillation spectrometers (routinely used in high energy physics research, medical imaging, diffraction, homeland security, nuclear waste clean-up, nuclear treaty verification and safeguards, and geological exploration). Un ...

  2. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Until now gamma radiation detection has required large single crystals of sensitive materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. In collaboration with a research group at the University of Texas at Arlington, Agiltron proposes to develop a new class of nanocomposite scintillator materials. The radiation detection characteristics of the synthetic nanoparticles in the ...

  3. Batteryless Sensors for Intrusion Detection and Assessment of Threats

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A batteryless and wireless sensor for intrusion detection and assessment of threats which requires no battery, external power or wiring is proposed. These types of sensors derive energy from passing vehicles or persons, and indicate their presence, location, speed, etc., via a self-generated short-range radio signal. These sensors require no maintenance, and can be inconspicuously placed in window ...
