Abstract
The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Physics maintains gamma-ray detector arrays as user facilities. The Modular Planar Germanium (MPGe) detector systems to be developed here will provide a lower cost, higher resolution, basis for such detector arrays. The MPGe detector systems will be experimentally developed by understanding the radiation-damage limitations of these detector systems, designing new systems that conform to array geometries, and finally fabricating prototypes for testing in DOE user facilities. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: While the DOE Nuclear Physics array applications are straightforward, there are numerous other commercially important areas and societal benefits from the evolution of such detector systems. The most significant of these application areas is preclinical and clinical Nuclear-Medicine imaging
