Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/06 - 08/31/09

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to conduct research and development of a new ceramic scintillator based on cerium-activated barium hamate (BaHfO3:-Ce), strontium hafnate (SrHfO3:-Ce), and lutetium hafnate (Lu2Hf2O7:Ce). The development program is prompted by the realization that there is presently only one scintillator that fu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to conduct research and development towards a ceramic scintillator composed of LSO:Ce. It is well known that crystalline LSO is one of the highest performance scintillators in terms of light output and timing. Only one impediment stands in the way of LSO assuming a commanding position in most ar...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/03 - 09/30/04

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose to conduct research and development of a new ceramic scintillator based on cerium-activated lutetiumhafnate (Lu2Hf2O7:Ce). The development program is prompted by the realization that there is presently only one scintillate that fulfills the needs of PET imaging, namely LSO. While in many ways re...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/15/01 - 09/14/03

The objective of this program is to develop a superior X-ray detector for digital dental radiography, based on the technology of activated transparent optical ceramics. Progress has far exceeded our Phase I goals, producing a fully dense TOC whose light output as measured by CCDs is on a par with CsI:Tl. We have also developed a laser techniqu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/10/01 - 06/30/02

We propose to conduct research and development towards a ceramic scintillator composed of LSO:Ce. It is well known that crystalline LSO is one of the highest performance scintillators in term of light output and timing. Only impediment stands in the way of LSO assuming a commanding position in most areas of medical applications: its unacceptably...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 04/01/99 - 03/31/00

DESCRIPTION: The investigators propose to test the feasibility of developing a transparent scintillator based on lutetium aluminum garnet (cerium doped) for dental X-ray radiography, as further described by their abstract: "We pro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 05/01/98 - 01/31/99

We propose to develop a digital radiography sensor, based on a fully dense transparent optical ceramic consisting of Lu2O3 doped with an appropriate luminescent lanthanide ion. We have already fabricated, by hot pressing techniques, transparent samples doped with Eu or Tb, and demonstrated that their...
