Paper Abstract

A theoretical and an experimental study in the area of electronic medical imaging devices operating through Kinestatic Charge Detection principles is in progress, aimed at a better understanding of both the macroscopic electric potentials and the charge transfer (exchange) reactions. It will be demonstrated that long range attractive dipolar moment forces associated with low ionization potential polar molecules with a high dipole moment in an inert gas detective medium offer superior imaging performance over the non-polar counterparts with zero electric dipole. The dopant works by introducing a drastic reduction of the ion mobility dispersion. The goal of this study is to implement and develop high resolution imaging detectors with applications in medical detector technology.
