  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, ...

  4. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers for Ground-Users

    SBC: MAYFLOWER COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY, INC.            Topic: NGA07001

    The overall objective of the HSGR Program is to develop a high sensitivity military GPS receiver to provide reliable GPS navigation, under weak GPS signal conditions, to ground based military GPS users. Mayflower’s approach to meet this HSGR program objective is to design, develop and incorporate “high-sensitivity” signal processing enhancements (namely, Vector Tracking (VT) and Multi-bit GP ...

  6. A Near-Source Model for Chemically Reacting Radionuclides

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a near-source model for the release of chemically reacting radionuclides. The model structure is based on an available code for reacting chemicals. The model will include interactive effects of nuclear transformation, chemical reaction, and plume physical motion. Such a model will provide fast and accurate predictions for the source characterization and transport of radion ...

  8. Thin Buried Oxide Densification for Radiation Hardened 80nm BOX SIMOX Substrates

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SIMOX (Separation by IMplanted Oxygen) technology achieves total dielelectric isolation of active device regions from the substrate and reduces the collection path for ionized charges via the built-in buried oxide which restricts charge movement. Advances in SIMOX technology include radiation hardened memories and gate arrays for space applications, ULSI DRAMS for low voltage operation, thin film ...

  9. A Megapixel Gamma Camera for Arms Control Verification

    SBC: Lexitek Inc            Topic: N/A

    Lexitek proposes to develop an imaging gamma-ray detector with 1024 x 1024 pixels for arms control verification. The proposed detector significantly enhances the resolution of fissionable material distribution without compromising energy resolution. The detector consists of a scintillating crystal and associated sensors which determine the energy and position of the scintillation with high spat ...

  10. Large Dynamic Range Shock Wave Measurements

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An optical sensor capable of producing 3-dimensional time resolved density maps characteristic of shock wavefronts at Mhz sampling rates is proposed. Each map is obtained from simultaneous measurements obtained with a novel refractometer capable of measuring integrated density fluctuations in air to better than 1 part in 3500 per centimeter path length at 1Mhz with good signal to noise (S/N=10). ...
