Abstract:Proliferation of nuclear weapons is a serious threat in the world today. One way to determine the presence of
nuclear weapons is to detect neutrons emitted by special nuclear material(SNM) such as highly enriched
uranium and weapons grade plutonium. The purpose of this project is to develop improved… more
Abstract:New technology is needed for nondestructive inspection (NDI) of defects in metallic components on aircraft. Small cracks and flaws in multilayer components near rivets and fasteners are a particular concern. Other problems include detecting and characterizing small defects in highly confined areas.… more
Abstract:Gamma-ray spectrometers consisting of inorganic scintillators coupled to optical detectors such as photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) are an important element of the systems that are used to monitor and prevent the spread of special nuclear materials. Two very important requirements for the scintillation… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Radiation Monitoring Devices ( RMD') is developing a digital radiographic imaging technology that is based upon a semiconductor x-ray receptor. The more specific, targeted application is mammographic imaging (including
breast tomosynthesis) for which the… more
Abstract:Available digital dosimeters are bulky and unable to provide real-time monitoring of dose for space radiation. The complexity of space-flight design requires reliable, fault-tolerant equipment capable of providing real-time dose readings during a mission, which is not feasible with the existing… more
Abstract:OBJECTIVE: Develop innovative scintillator materials for the detection of gamma-ray or neutron radiation for a variety of applications. For handheld and arrayed detectors criteria for improvement include better energy resolution; higher light output (photons per MeV); improved linearity of light… more
Abstract:Monitoring space radiation and the dose received by astronauts is important, especially for future long-duration missions. Neutrons contribute a significant component to the total radiation dose during solar events. We propose to develop a rugged, compact, lightweight, non-hazardous CMOS-based… more
Abstract:The goal of this work is to develop a novel Raman scattering spectrometer for advance standoff detection of IEDs and suicide bomber threats. When using the proposed instrument, we will obtain rapid, chemical-specific analysis at standoff distances of up to 30 m. This instrument will have… more
Abstract:High spatial resolution, LIDAR images of underwater targets from air and submersed platforms are plagued by poor signal-to-noise ratios (SNR), arising from strong scattering in the turbid media of seawater. A hybrid system that combines the detection and coherent signal processing techniques of… more
Abstract:New technology is needed for the nondestructive inspection (NDI) of defects in gas turbine engines. This is particularly true for components such as turbine blades with fretting fatigue defects that are difficult to detect and characterize with existing NDI equipment. The lack of detailed flaw… more
Abstract:Current state-of-the-art X-ray imaging detectors use energy integration, where the simple integration of X-ray events during the exposure period forms images. Unfortunately, such indiscriminate operation is sub-optimal for digital radiography or CT imaging because of its inability to reject scatter… more
Abstract:Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
