Subnanosecond scintillation detector for high energy cosmic rays

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Subnanosecond scintillation detector for high energy cosmic rays

The task objective is to develop a gamma ray scintillator technology with subnanosecond temporal resolution and the capability to withstand unprecedented rates and doses of high energy gamma radiation. This is a joint project with Caltech Prof. Dave Hitlin to detect BaF2 fast scintillation (τ ~ 0.9ns at λ ~ 220nm) while rejecting slow scintillation (τ ~ 650ns at λ ~ 330nm). We will also develop solar blind coatings using ALD technology for DUV bandpass filter.
