  5. An Empirical Approach to Developing Web-based Math Learning Games to Improve Elementary School Student Outcomes

    SBC: Virtual Learning Technologies (Sokikom)            Topic: N/A

    Recent reports assert that the education system of the United States is failing to produce enough mathematically skilled workers necessary for the country to remain globally competitive. A key problem in the current system, as reported by the National Mathematics Advisory Panel, is that students are not learning the foundational math skills they need during the elementary school years. This projec ...

  8. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    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 ...

  9. 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 5x5 cm2, right cylinder, ...
