  2. 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 ...

  3. 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, ...

  7. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Quantum Dot Based Nanotechnologies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA082001

    For applications in DoD satellite systems, devices based on novel nanomaterials offer significant advantages over traditional technologies in terms of light-weight and efficiency. Examples of such novel devices include quantum dot (QD) based solar cells, photodetectors, radars and sensors. However, the response of these devices to radiation effects is not well understood, and radiation effects mod ...

  10. Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA08001

    Wet installation of fasteners offers proven corrosion protection and fuel sealing in aircraft structures, but it''''s a labor-intensive, messy, hazmat-laden process whose quality can vary significantly from fastener to fastener. Under a Navy SBIR Phase II, SMRC has developed a proprietary process called QwikSeal® for pre-coating fasteners with cure-blocked sealant, then overcoating the pre-applie ...
