  • Publication number: 20200057168
    Abstract: A positron or beta particle detector comprising a first radiation sensor made of a first material and having a first thickness between a first surface and a second surface; and a second radiation sensor made of a second material and having a second thickness between a first surface and a second surface, the second radiation sensor being arranged at a first distance from the first radiation sensor; wherein the first material and the first thickness are such that a positron or beta particle can traverse the first radiation sensor from first to second surface and hit the first surface of the second radiation sensor.

  • Patent number: 10139496
    Abstract: A multi-radiation identification and dosimetry system and method that allows for monitoring of alpha, beta, and gamma radiation is disclosed. The system/method incorporates a segmented silicon drift detector (SSDD) that allows measurement of directly absorbed radiation in the semiconductor (betas, conversion electrons, Lx lines, and alphas) on one SSDD segment and radiation from a radiation scintillation detector (RSD) on multiple segments of the SSDD. With the anode side of the SSDD directed toward the radiation inspection surface (RIS), the SSDD+RSD stacked radiation detector collects radiation which is processed by a charge sensitive amplifier (CSA) and then processed by a time stamping differentiator (TSD). A computing control device (CCD) may be configured to collect the time stamp differentiation data from the various SSDD segments to permit the simultaneous discrimination of several types of radiation by and presentation of these radiation types and counts on a display monitor.
