Abstract
This project seeks to demonstrate an improved, ultra fast and high efficiency electron detector for electron microscopy. The proposed approach will have high radiation resistance compared to current state-of-the-art detectors. The detector also will have a very low decay time, which will enable a faster scanning time than current detector materials, and higher brightness. Phase I will involve the fabrication of ZnO-based electron detectors for electron microscopy. Commercial Applications and other Benefits as described by the awardee: The technology should have applications in microscopy, geophysics, medical imaging, homeland security and high energy physics.
