Radiation Detector & Imaging Group


The Jefferson Lab Radiation Detector & Imaging Group, headed by Dr. Drew Weisenberger, has unique technical capabilities applicable not only to nuclear physics radiation detector development, but also to application spin-offs of the detector technology.

These capabilities include expertise in several areas relevant to radiation imaging detector development, including:

  1. Component technologies of pixellated scintillators, position-sensitive photomultiplier tubes, solid state detectors, silicon photomultipliers and light guides;
  2. Fast analog and digital detector readout electronics design and construction;
  3. Software development for real-time computer-controlled data acquisition and
  4. Monte Carlo and analytic simulation and tomographic image reconstruction for nuclear medicine imaging.
