Description - Solid-State Radiation Detectors by Salah Awadalla

Integrating aspects of engineering, application physics, and medical science, Solid-State Radiation Detectors: Technology and Applications offers a comprehensive review of new and emerging solid-state materials-based technologies for radiation detection. Each chapter is structured to address the current advantages and challenges of each material and technology presented, as well as to discuss novel research and applications.

Featuring contributions from leading experts in industry and academia, this authoritative text:

  • Covers modern semiconductors used for radiation monitoring

  • Examines CdZnTe and CdTe technology for imaging applications including three-dimensional capability detectors

  • Highlights interconnect technology for current pixel detectors

  • Describes hybrid pixel detectors and their characterizations

  • Tackles the integrated analog signal processing read-out front ends for particle detectors

  • Considers new organic materials with direct bandgap for direct energy detection

  • Summarizes recent developments involving lanthanum halide and cerium bromide scintillators

  • Analyzes the potential of recent progress in the field of crystallogenesis, quantum dots, and photonics crystals toward a new concept of x- and gamma-ray detectors based on metamaterials

  • Explores position-sensitivity photomultipliers and silicon photomultipliers for scintillation crystals

Solid-State Radiation Detectors: Technology and Applications provides a valuable reference for engineers and scientists looking to enhance the performance of radiation detector technology for medical imaging and other applications.
