Vertigo is a light, movable, compact vertically integrated microsystem which allows secure access, measurement and three-dimensional localization of difficult radioactive environments. The system design includes a high resolution, radiation hard, MEMS-based multiple-particle pixelated detector, a camera, data storage and high band wireless transmission, cooling system and batteries. The...

The recently proposed (2013) high-density SiPM technology (HD-SiPM) is based on a redesigned border region of the microcells, allowing a small cell size with high fill factor. The separation between microcells is obtained with trenches, which provide electrical isolation and optical attenuation of the photons emitted during the avalanche. These features translate into high photo detection...

The performance of a silicon detector in partially depleted condition has been studied. The detector has been used for Pulse Shape (PS) identification of charged nuclear fragments. Particles entered the detector from the ohmic (low field) side, to enhance PS identification performance. Five different bias voltages have been used, one corresponding to full depletion (used as reference of the...
14. Development of a gamma-blind neutron-efficient detector using silicon detectors and a reactive lithium film.

The use of silicon detectors with neutron-reactive films provides a compact technology for thermal-neutron detection. A thermal-neutron detector has been developed utilizing the 6Li(n,alpha)3H reaction. A detector with a stable 6LiF layer has been produced and tested, while a detector designed to use a pure 6Li metal film is nearing completion. The challenge for this latter design is to...

Modern cancer treatments have become increasingly more sophisticated in the past years and therefore require a real-time, reliable radiation dose monitoring system. Silicon microdosimeters are excellent candidates as they are small in size and have high spatial resolution. The ease of coupling to readout electronics makes them the first choice for a real time on-line system. The devices in...
