Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1994
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

THE OVERALL GOAL IS TO DEVELOP LOW COST "SMART" SENSORS FOR HARD X-RAYS SUITABLE FOR USE WITH MINIMALLY INTRUSIVE EMPLACEMENT SYSTEMS SUCH AS CONE PENETROMETERS AND PORTABLE INSTRUMENTS. THE SENSORS WILL EFFICIENTLY MEASURE ENERGY SPECTRA UP TO 300KE V, AN IMPORTANT RANGE FOR SPECTROSCOPIC DETERMINATION OF THE ACTINIDE RADIOISTOPES AND FOR X-RA...

Topic: SB891-005
Budget: 03/14/91 - 03/14/93

Phase I demonstrated that the SDS Process of crystal growth produces CdTe or CdZnTe crystals with the quality and homogeneity needed to fabricate multi-element detector arrays. As a follow-up, we propose to develop a hand held gamma-ray imager with goals of angular resolution of 1-3 arcdegrees and FOV of 30 arcdegrees. Such an instrument would...

Phase 1 SBIR
