Uses of radiation detectors

  1. Nov 22, 2013 #1
    Hello, I am a business student currently collaborating on a technology project whose aim is to find alternative applications for a radiation detector made from artificial diamond.

    The main benefits of the detector are:
    • Ultra-fast response time
    • High durability in really harsh environments (vacuum, radioactive environment, space, cryogenic temperatures)
    • Very good signal-to-noise ratio and therefore very precise and reliable measurement
    • Broad dynamic range (radioactive particles to UV-light)

    Any ideas where it could be used?

    Thanks for your help

    Hello, no, we come from the same university and both collaborate with Talent program from CERN. However, our projects are slightly different and include different types of radiation detectors.
