Basic research interests in nanoscale radiation sensing
Author(s): Calvin Shipbaugh

Paper Abstract

Identification of the presence of radioactive materials is important for both defense and environmental concerns. Nanoscience may enable improved understanding of energy storage or transfer processes that can be exploited for indicators. For example, nanoscale materials that emit spectral signatures in the presence of ionizing radiation or nuclear particles, when incorporated in other widely used materials or objects, would assist in locating and securing radiological or nuclear materials.
