Paper Abstract

The goal of this study is to present unconventional detection and imaging principles which may lead to novel detection and characterization methodologies for standoff detection of radiation. While there currently are a number of effective technologies and methodologies for nuclear detection based on direct and indirect-ionization detector architectures operating on radiation counting techniques, the problem of detecting nuclear radiation at significant standoff distances remains one of the most difficult and most important challenges. The phenomenology of alternative signatures, a physical algorithm aimed to assess remotely biological hazards of nuclear radiation, and the design of efficient standoff detection architectures are presented.
