Radiation Detectors Division (TJ3) mission is to conduct R&D works in the field of detection of ionising radiation. In particular scintillation crystals read out by photomultipliers/photodiodes and semiconductor detectors are researched. Research topics include:
- properties of scintillators intended for gamma spectrometry (light yield, energy resolution, nonproportionality etc.)
- modern light detectors (Si-PMT / MPPC silicon photomultipliers)
- development of neutron detectors.
Detectors developed in the Division find their applicatiion in:
- nuclear medicine
- border checkpoint scanners.
Semiconductor Detector Lab offers services concerning regeneration of HPGe (high-purity germanium) detectors.
