Electron beam or electron emission measurement system using nano scintillators for medical and radiation safety applications

Duke University is seeking a company interested in commercializing a novel and versatile technology that utilizes nano-scale radiation detectors to provide accurate and sensitive radiation dose measurements anywhere a fiber or screen can be placed. This technology further provides concurrent accounting of absorbed electron doses, as well measures scattered electron emission in real time. In addition, this technology makes possible nano-particle embedded cloth swipes that can be used for radiation contamination surveys on the bench top. The technology may also be used as the sensing elements in small, hand-held portable electron detectors for general radiation safety applications.
