Abstract
ABSTRACT: We propose a concept for the detection of radiological sources at stand-off distances, using a two part system consisting of a detector tag and a radar system. A radiation-sensitive resonant circuit with nonlinear properties (the tag) is placed near a kn BENEFITS: Successful completion of this project will result in one or more circuit designs for detection tags, and theoretical, simulated, and laboratory measurement results for the expected sensitivity of the tag(s) to incident radiation. Potential applications o
