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