Materials

RMD’s goal is to find innovative materials and compounds that improve the detection characteristics of scintillators. Our research has led to design breakthroughs with superior properties that exhibit:

  1. High light output
  2. Are transparent to their own scintillation light
  3. Efficient conversion of the input signal into light
  4. High stopping power
  5. Short rise time for fast timing applications
  6. Short decay time to reduce detector dead-time and accommodate high event rates

Our ongoing research falls into three categories of materials:
