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.
