  1. Improved Solid-State Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    The use and applications of radiological sources, for power, medical, and defense applications, continuously increases with time. Illicit nuclear materials represent a threat for the safety of the American citizens and the detection and interdiction of a nuclear weapon is a national problem that has not been yet solved. This represents an enormous challenge to current detection methods and monitor ...

  2. Combined Solid-State Neutron Gamma High Efficiency Detector

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NOVA Scientific proposes Phase II development of a solid-state, high-efficiency neutron detection alternative to 3He gas tubes employing neutron-sensitive microchannel plates (MCPs) containing 10B and/or Gd. This program supports the DNDO development of technologies designed to detect and interdict nuclear weapons or illicit nuclear materials. This solid-state neutron detector would permit operati ...

  3. High Quantum Efficiency, Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma-Ray Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB062007

    Gamma-ray spectrometers consisting of inorganic scintillators coupled to optical detectors such as photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) are an important element of the systems that are used to monitor and prevent the spread of special nuclear materials. Two very important requirements for the scintillation detectors used as gamma-ray spectrometers in homeland security monitoring include high sensitivity a ...

  4. Chem Bio Sensor Wizard for Engineering Environmental Protection

    SBC: Peerless Technologies Corporation            Topic: HSB062001

    In Phase I, the Peerless team developed an approach for an innovative wizard driven, turn-key, system that can be used by inexperienced operators to quickly design new sensor networks and evaluate existing sensor networks for the protection against and detection of CB agents within public structures. For Phase II, Peerless will conduct three development spirals to build the prototype system, valid ...

  5. Handheld Trace Explosives Sampler

    SBC: Implant Sciences Corporation            Topic: HSB071001

    Non contact trace explosives detection has not been comparable to results obtained from wipe sampling. Many issues, including finding a method to release particles from a surface, efficient particle and vapor transport, and limited particle and vapor trap collection efficiency have all limited the process. Other related issues have included cost of ownership, ease of contamination removal, and com ...

  6. New Neutron Detectors with Pulse Shape Discrimination

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: HSB071009

    Proliferation of the weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. Preventing 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. One way to passively determine the presence of nuclear weapons is to detect and identify characteristic signatures of ...

  7. Proof of Concept Demonstration of a Compact Accelerator

    SBC: Passport Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    Electron accelerators that produce high duty cycle electron beams with beam energies up to 9 MeV are essential for use in practical Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence and EZ-3DTM imaging technologies. While isotopic identification of shielded materials is now possible via these technologies, it is still necessary to achieve accelerator portability, compactness and reasonable cost of ownership to make ...

  8. Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-Bourne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB0121003

    Title: Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-borne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives. The overall goal of this SBIR proposal is to develop a portable system for stand-off detection of concealed explosives. The system will produce images positively identifying the presence of explosives and have the ability to detect and identify different types of military explosives (like TNT, C ...

  9. High Efficiency TlBr Gamma-Ray Detector Module

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 121005

    The ideal semiconductor detector for nuclear monitoring should have good energy resolution, high detection efficiency, compact size, light weight, easy portability and low cost. In the proposed effort, we plan to develop a detector module for nuclear monitoring based on thallium bromide (TlBr), a wide band gap semiconductor that recently has shown great promise as a gamma-ray detector material. Tl ...

  10. Establishment of Scientific and Industrial Base for Production of High Purity Precursor Materials for SrI2:Eu and CLYC

    SBC: CapeSym, Inc            Topic: 111001

    Successful growth of novel halide scintillators SrI2:Eu and CLYC depends on a supply of highly pure precursor materials. CapeSym and SAFC have partnered to develop a thorough understanding of the factors that influence purity, and techniques to reduce these impurity levels in SrI2:Eu and CLYC precursors. Novel processing and crystal growth experiments at CapeSym, and materials characterization at ...
