In the nuclear technology group at York, we focus on the development of state-of-the-art radiation detection systems. These detectors find widespread use in industrial and societal applications (such as medicine and homeland security) as well as in particle and nuclear physics experiments. Many of our research projects are carried out in close collaboration with our industrial partners. Currently we are specialising on solutions for science and society that are based on silicon photomultipliers coupled to scintillator detectors while the group also carries expertise on Si, HPGe and CdZnTe semiconductor detectors.
