Potential on liquid light guide as distributed radiation sensor

IEEE Symposium Conference Record Nuclear Science 2004., 2004

Position sensitive detectors with optical fibers are useful for one- dimensional distributed radiation sensing. There has been, however, a problem of radiation induced transmission losses and life time of the optical fibers restricting their applicability for high-level radiation environments. In order to improve the limitation of the optical fiber based radiation sensing, we propose to use a liquid light guide ...

  • Potential on liquid light guide as distributed radiation sensor

    Position sensitive detectors with optical fibers are useful for one- dimensional distributed radiation sensing. There has been, however, a problem of radiation induced transmission losses and life time of the optical fibers restricting their applicability for high-level radiation environments. In order to improve the limitation of the optical fiber based radiation sensing, we propose to use a liquid light guide (LLG) with more radiation hardness than the solid one. The preliminary experiments have given us some promising results that the incident radiation emits the Cherenkov photons in the core and the position can be determined by the time-of-flight method. At present, we have confirmed that the position resolution is around 9.6 cm in a 2 m long LLG for the /sup 60/Co gamma-ray beam with a diameter of 10 mm and no transmission loss is observed up to the dose of 2.5/spl times/10/sup 3/ Gy.

  • Silicon p-n junctions as detectors for uv radiation

    Photoconductive and photovoltaic devices for detection of short wavelength visible and ultraviolet radiation have not previously been developed to the same extent as solid state infrared detectors. The spectral response of semiconductor devices generally exhibits a sharp drop in sensitivity with decreasing wavelength e. g. in standard Si devices, the Dλ at 4000 Å is lower than the Dλ at 8000 Å by orders of magnitude and is dropping rapidly as one proceeds into the ultraviolet.

  • A block detector for a multislice, depth-of-interaction MR-compatible PET

    We proposed and tested the a block detector for a multislice, depth-of- interaction (DOI) MR-compatible positron emission tomography (PET). The detector consists of a block detector, four optical fibers and photo- multiplier tubes (PMTs). The block detector is a lutetium oxyorthosilicate (LSO) DOI detector comprising eight LSOs arranged in a 2/spl times/2/spl times/2 matrix based on the concept proposed by Murayama et al. The size of a single scintillator of a prototype block detector was 2/spl times/2/spl times/2 mm. The scintillation photons are collected from the side of the scintillator block detector and are transferred to four channels of the position-sensitive PMT (PSPMT) using four optical fibers several meters long. The outputs of the PSPMT signals are calculated to determine the position of gamma interaction in the block detector. Results show that although the light loss from using the fiber was around 90%, there were sufficient transferred scintillation photons to obtain the photo-peak and to calculate the position of gamma interaction in the block detector with reasonable separation. We also modified the block detector to improve the performance of the detector. The size of a single scintillator of the modified block detector was enlarged to be 2.5 mm (transaxial) /spl times/ 3.5 mm (axial) /spl times/ 3.5 mm (depth) to improve the sensitivity. Good position responses as well as time resolution of 5.6-ns full-width at half-maximum (FWHM) were obtained for the modified block detector. With these results, we conclude that a two-rings, two-layer DOI-MR-compatible PET can be realized using the proposed block detector.

  • An advanced SiC nuclear radiation detector

    This paper reports low noise, high charge collection efficiency, resolution, room temperature, self-biased operation of 3-8 /spl mu/m thick, epitaxially grown, SiC Schottky and pn junction diode detectors fabricated on n+ 4H-SiC substrates. These devices are also shown, for the first time, to have a linear gamma ray response. The thin active region used not only eliminates the problems with material purity, but also allows the device to be tailored for specific applications. For instance, the gamma ray sensitivity of detectors for reactor control applications, can be minimized because the gamma ray signal (produced over the entire volume of a bulk detector) is limited by the thin active region whereas the neutron-induced charged-particle signal (produced near the surface) is not. Finally, the high resolution of these devices (comparable to silicon detectors) enables discrimination between neutron, gamma ray and fission fragment spectra and should prove useful in other nuclear radiation detection applications.

  • Proximity Charge Sensing With Semiconductor Detectors

    Semiconductor radiation detectors are routinely used for the detection, imaging, and spectroscopy of gamma-ray, x-ray, and charged particles. In basic form, a detector is comprised of a semiconductor crystal with two or more electrodes formed on its surfaces. Besides allowing for the application of bias voltage, one or more of the electrodes on a detector also serve as readout electrode. Charge carriers drifting across the detector induce a charge signal on the electrode, which can then be measured by a charge- sensitive amplifier connected to the electrode. Although in general the readout electrodes of a detector are formed on the detector itself, charge can be induced on any electrode, even if the electrode is not physically in contact with the semiconductor. Such proximity charge sensing effects can be utilized to achieve a variety of advantages in applications involving semiconductor detectors. In this paper, we report on the experimental verification of signal readout using proximity electrodes and demonstrate several possible applications of this technique, including the position- sensitive readout of detectors and the sensing of incomplete charge collection in detectors as a means to reduce spectral background.

  • Well-type phoswich counter for low-flux X-ray/ gamma-ray detection

    Novel phoswich counters have been developed that are capable of detecting low flux hard X-rays gamma -rays from localized sources. The counter consists of a small inorganic scintillator with a fast decay time (the detection part) glued to the interior bottom surface of a well-shaped block of another inorganic scintillator with a slow decay time (the shielding part). The well-shaped shielding part acts as an active collimator as well as an active shield. The whole assembly is viewed by a phototube from the exterior bottom surface of the shielding part. By using an appropriate pulse-shape discriminator, hard X-rays/ gamma -rays that have deposited energy only in the detection part can be selected. The first model counter was built by using a new scintillator, GSO, in the detection part and CsI(Tl) in the shielding part. A detector system consisting of 64 such phoswich counters (total area approximately 740 cm/sup 2/) was flown on board a balloon, setting a limit to the /sup 57/Co line flux from SN 1987A at around 10/sup -4//cm/sup 2/-s. The sensitivity for continuum flux was around a few*10/sup -6//cm/sup 2/-s-keV between 100 and 200 keV.<<ETX>>
