We use a range of detection methods in our radiation detectors for the civil nuclear sector which includes cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) as well as various scintillator crystals. We were the pioneer in CZT production, to this day we are one of only four companies that can make this compound. We now produce it in our factory in the UK and in the US.
Cadmium zinc telluride allows detectors to be smaller, improves accuracy and more convenient to use. This, in turn, creates new ways for detectors to be used, we have seen our detectors being flown on drones and launched into space.
In the end what is important is what you want to do – we choose the right detector technology for the task as well as all the supporting electronics and software.
Whether you need to detect neutrons, gamma-rays or x-rays we have products that can meet your needs and software that can interpret the results.
