The primary emphasis is on developing semiconductor X-ray and gamma-ray detectors and imagers which combine the advantages of room-temperature operation with the excellent energy resolution of cryogenically cooled spectrometers. By eliminating the cryogen, new radiation-sensing instruments, such as spectrometers and imagers, can be manufactured that are portable, easy to operate, and relatively maintenance-free. Medical systems, industrial process monitoring, baggage scanning, and environmental remediation are fields where these systems are finding increased commercial application. Topics include: cadmium zinc telluride growth and materials properties- cadmium zinc telluride detectors and systems- cadmium telluride materials, detectors and systems- mercury and lead iodide materials, detectors and systems- Group IV and III-V materials, detectors and systems- ZnSe and ZnS materials and detectors- analysis and characteristics of detectors, systems and applications and IR materials and detectors.
