High temperature ionising radiation sensors based on CVD diamond

2 March 2018

Time: 1:30 - 3:30pm
Speaker: Peter Hobson (Brunel)
Venue: G. O. Jones Building, Room 410

Applications in the civil nuclear industry and oil and gas well logging now demand robust radiation sensors which can reliably operate at temperatures in excess of 200 C. In this talk I will discuss recent research carried out in my group and elsewhere to show what has, and has not, yet been achieved in developing sensors based on CVD diamond for these challenging environments. I will discuss the current challenges and areas for future work.
