Abstract Submission Deadline: May 8, 2017


The 24th International Conference on Room-Temperature Semiconductor 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 medicine, homeland security, astrophysics and environmental remediation. The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of the state-of-the-art of the detector technology, materials development, device and material characterization, electronics and applications. To provide a comprehensive review, oral and poster presentations representing a broad spectrum of research activities emphasizing either semiconductor devices or materials understanding are sought. Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts on original work in the following areas:

  • Semiconductor Materials for Radiation Detection
  • Pixel, Strip, Frisch-Grid and Discrete Semiconductor Detectors
  • 3D Photon Tracking Detectors and Image Reconstruction Technology
  • Crystal Growth, Materials and Defects Characterization
  • Properties of Electrical Contacts and Device Fabrication Technology
  • Radiation Damage, Long-Term Stability and Environmental Effects
  • Organic and other Photoconductive Materials for Radiation Detection
  • Scintillator/Semiconductor Array Hybrids
  • Semiconductor Neutron Detectors
  • Detector/ASIC Hybridization, Interconnects and Electronics
  • Spectrometer Systems for Homeland Security, Nuclear Inspections, Safeguards, Portal Monitoring, and Other Uses
  • Imaging Systems for Medical, Astrophysics, Non-Destructive Testing, Cargo Monitoring, and Other Uses
