Proposal Title: High Quantum Efficiency Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma Ray Detection
Topic Number: H-SB06.2-007
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: HIGH QUANTUM EFFICIENCY FAST DETECTORS FOR THE READOUT OF SCINTILLATORS FOR GAMMA RAY DETECTION
Organization: AGILTRON,INC
Address: 15 Presidential Way
Woburn, MA 01801-1040  
Abstract: Agiltron proposes to demonstrate a breakthrough detector for readout of scintillators for gamma ray detection that overcomes the quantum efficiency and high voltage limits of current PMTs and APDs. It holds the promise to improve the current scintillator detector resolution by at least 30 percent without the need for a high voltage power supply, and can be fabricated at a low cost. This new photomultiplier detector possesses many unique attractive properties that do not exist in any existing readouts for nuclear radiation detectors, such as PMTs, APDs. The Phase I work will demonstrate a detector element with high quantum efficiency, high gain at ultra low bias voltage, and, integrated with the scintillator crystal, the spectral resolution for gamma ray detection. A fully functional device will be developed in Phase II.
