CEBAF Partner Wins R&D 100 Award
In conjuction with CEBAF and NASA, Digiray Corporation, of San Ramon, CA, was awarded the R&D 100 Award for work on the reverse geometry x-ray miniprobe (RGM). The transportable system for realtime x-ray imaging is being used to find cracks and corrosion in oil refinery piping. It can locate and measure very small features anywhere on or within the object being examined.
"We are happy to have objective proof to the usefulness of our efforts," says Stan Majewski, staff scientist in charge of the detector group. The group developed the miniprobe through expertise obtained while developing detector technology for the CEBAF experimental program. The miniprobe is composed of a scintillator, light guide and photo detector.
The RGM relies on reverse geometry, which changes the relationship of the x-ray source to the object being x-rayed and eliminates the need for precise alignment. The views delivered are sent directly from detector to computer.

It was a close match with the team of Mike O'Sullivan, Mark Cooper, Bob Gravina, and Mark Geeselin taking the match with a 5 under par 65. Second place went to the team of Omar Garza, Harold Davis, Mike Memory, and Eric Woodworth with a 1 under par 69.
Thanks to our prize sponsor, Harold Davis of Phillip Morris USA, many people left with wonderful prizes. Everyone who participated received a sport duffel bag stuffed with lots of goodies. In addition, the company donated several major prizes, including golf bags, travel bags, shirts, putters, umbrellas, and stadium blankets, as well as dozens of golf balls.
Here are some of the winners:
