Department Description:

The Radiation and Nuclear Detection Systems department undertakes research and development of ionizing radiation and rare signature detection systems to address broad nuclear security needs in support of various US Government programs\. Through internal collaborations our department targets applications in neutron generators, nuclear proliferation detection, nuclear non\-proliferation, international safeguards, arms control treaty verification, radiological emergency response, and other national security objectives such as explosives detection\. Areas of significant experience and expertise include fission\-energy neutron detection and imaging, anti\-neutrino detection, weak source detection techniques, and high\-channel\-count systems\. Our work includes a range of basic to applied research, and involves equipment at various technology readiness levels:

\- Basic Research \(TRL 1\-2\)

\* Experimental study and characterization of radiation signatures encountered in nuclear security scenarios

\* Conception and development of new radiation detection techniques

\- Development of radiation detection systems \(TRL 3\-4\)

\* Feasibility studies and rapid detector system prototyping

\* Laboratory tests of prototype systems: controlled experiments emulating relevant aspects of real\-world scenarios

\- Field Experiments \(TRL 5\-6\)

\* Deployment of mature detection systems to understand their performance in real measurement environments

The department specializes in designing detection systems for the anticipated radiation signature and background for a specific application\. Using as much information in the expected radiation signature as possible, we design

\- detectors for standoff detection and localization of radiological materials

\- detectors for rare event signatures

\- antineutrino and coherent neutrino scattering detection

\- high resolution imaging detection systems

\- Discriminate between point and extended radiation sources

\- Identify chemical elements in 3D through high\-Z shielding

\- detectors in high background / high rate environments

\- active interrogation, above ground nuclear reactor monitoring, neutron generator monitors

\- Particle identification and discrimination
