AbstractNot Available Conventional photo-conductive and scintillation-based detectors have inherent limitations due to the fundamental problems associated with extracting secondary particles (electrons, holes or scintillation photons) from a detection medium. These problems include impurity attachment, low carrier mobility, hole trapping, recombination, electrode capacitance, non-uniform electric fields, poor electrical contacts and self-absorption in scintillators. Recent results by researchers at Sentor Technologies Inc. have demonstrated the potential for an entirely new class of gamma radiation detector based on microwave photo-conductivity. The contactless MiRaD detector can detect and quantify gamma-ray interactions in a material without directly collecting secondary particles and promises to offer properties far surpassing anything currently available. The phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed detector technology and will generate performance specifications. This will be accomplished through a combination of analytical modeling and experimental testing.
