ResearchThe Materials Science and Applications Group has 4 main directions for research: Crystal Growth, Detector fabrication, Materials Characterization, Detector Evaluation and Applications.
Crystal Growth(for more details click here)
We have grown successfully
and some chalcopyrites: LiInSe2 , LiGaSe2 , LiGaTe2 , AgGa1-xInxSe2 , AgGaGe3Se8
LiGaSe2 AgGa1-xInxSe2 , AgGaGe3Se8
as grown on Fisk
Detector FabricationFabrication Process consists on: Cutting, Polishing, Etching, Photolitography, Contact deposition. For details about each step of detector fabrication click on the name of the process above.
Students involved in detector fabrication process.
Material CharacterizationWe have capabilities to characterize all the crystals that we are growing in our group and other crystals such as CZT, grown by our partners .
The characterization process includes tests of electrical, optical, radiation detection properties. For details about each step of characterization click on the name of the test above.
Detector Evaluation and ApplicationsAlpha and Gamma ray spectroscopy
