Radiation Detection Materials R&D

Sodium iodide and high-purity germanium have been the workhorse materials for radiation detection for many years, but they do not meet the needs of many important Homeland and National Security applications.

In cooperation with the newly established ORNL Center for Radiation Detection Materials and Systems, we are working on developing new materials:

  • Scintillators
  • Semiconductors
  • Materials for cryogenic detectors (neutrons)
