  1. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    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 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

  2. Electromagnetically-Stirred THM Process for Growth of CZT

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA092007

    It is proposed to develop a novel process for growth of high quality CZT crystals for nuclear detection applications. Currently the THM process is the technology of choice for production of high quality CZT crystals. This process, however, suffers from extremely low growth rates. The development effort proposed here will seek to increase the crystal growth rate by 5-10 times the current levels ...

  3. Next Generation in Detection Materials Processing

    SBC: Neotron Inc            Topic: DTRA092007

    Three nuclides are especially useful in detecting thermalized neutrons: helium-3, lithium-6 , and boron-10. Since current demand will deplete reserves of helium-3 in roughly two years, there is a large desire to develop detectors that have the capacity to replace helium-3 tubes. In this proposal we spell out our plan to adapt Neotron''s already developed fission neutron detector into a high effic ...

  4. NEXT GENERATION ULTRA WIDEBAND (UWB) INTRUSTION DETECTION RADAR FOR THE PROTECTION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES

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

    IMPULSE RADAR WHICH DERIVES ITS "MAIN BANG", A TRANSIENT, BY EXCITING AN ANTENNA CAVITY WITH A SUBNANOSECOND PULSE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR INTRUSION DETECTION. A RECENT SBIR PROGRAM COMPLETED FOR DNA RESULTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW LOW COST, LIGHT WEIGHT, RADAR SENSOR FOR THE PROTECTION OF NUCLEAR SITES NOW BEING MARKETED COMMERCIALLY. DURING THE DNA FIELD EXPERIMENTS ON ANIMA ...

  5. FIBER OPTIC MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS FOR MOLDABLE EXPLOSIVES CURE MONITORING AND CHARGE CHARACTERIZATION

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    20 TON SPHERICAL EXPLOSIVE CHARGES MADE FROM MOLDABLE EXPLOSIVES HAVE BECOME INCREAINGLY IMPORTANT TO DNA'S ABOVEGROUND TEST PROGRAMS. THESE CHARGES PROVIDE LONGER DURATION FREE FIELD PRESSURE SIGNALS THAN CAN BE PRODUCED IN THE UNDERGROUND TEST ENVIRONMENT. THE SAFETY OF MANUFACTURING THESE 20 TON SPHERICAL CHARGES COULD BE GREATLY ENHANCED THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF FIBER OPTIC BASED INSTRUMENTA ...

  6. FIBER OPTIC ELECTRIC FIELD SENSORS FOR USE IN HARSH RADIATION ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER OPTICE ELECTRIC FIELD MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS OFFER ELECTROMAGNETIC PULSE AND ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE IMMUNITY THAT IS NOT PROVIDED BY STANDARD ELECTRON BASED INSTRUMENTATION. TO DATE FIBER OPTIC BASED ELECTRIC FIELD MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN USED MOSTLY IN ABOVEGROUND TEST APPLICATIONS. IN THE UNDERGROUND TEST ENVIRONMENT, SENSORS ARE EXPOSED TO A HARSH RADIATION ENVIRONMENT. TECHNIQUE ...

  9. MULTI-BEAM LASER INTERFEROMETER FOR PLASMA DENSITY MEASUREMENTS IN A PLASMA EROSION OPENING SWITCH (PEOS)

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: N/A

    SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY PROPOSES TO DESIGN, CONSTRUCT AND TEST AN ULTRA-SENSITIVE LASER INTERFEROMETER TO MEASURE THE PLASMA DENSITY INSIDE A PLASMA EROSION OPENING SWITCH DURING ITS CONDUCTION AND OPENING PHASES. A SIMILAR INTERFEROMETER HAS ALREADY BEEN PROVEN BY SRL FOR ULTRA-SENSITIVE GAS ABSORPTION MEASUREMENTS. THE HIGHER BANDWIDTH REQUIRED FOR PEOS MEASUREMENTS AND THE MORE HOSTILE PULS ...
