15th International Workshop on Room-Temperature Semiconductor X- and Gamma-Ray Detectors

October 30 – November 3, 2006

Abstract submission deadline: June 2, 2006

The 15th International Workshop on Room-Temperature Semiconductor X- and Gamma-Ray Detectors (RTSD) represents the largest forum of scientists and engineers developing new solid-state radiation detectors and imaging arrays. Room-temperature semiconductor radiation detectors are finding increasing applications in such diverse fields as astrophysics, nuclear medicine, national security and environmental remediation. The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of the state-of-the-art of this technology. To provide a comprehensive review, oral and poster presentations representing a broad spectrum of research activities emphasizing either device or materials understanding are sought. Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts on original works in the following areas:

  • Wide Band-gap Semiconductor Materials for Radiation Detection

  • Strip, Pixel and Discrete Semiconductor Arrays

  • Crystal Growth and Materials Characterization

  • Properties of Electrical Contacts and Internal Field Distributions

  • Radiation Damage, Long-Term Stability and Environmental Effects

  • Scintillator/Semiconductor Array Hybrids

  • Semiconductor Neutron Detectors

  • Detector/ASIC Hybridization and Interconnects

  • Spectrometer Systems for Nuclear Inspections, Safeguards, Portal Monitoring, and International Security

  • Imaging Systems for Medical, Astrophysics, and Cargo Monitoring Applications
