Advanced Compton-geometry gamma radiation imaging for radionuclide measurement in soils and geomaterials

(Co-I James Cooper): The NERC-funded project will develop new Compton cameras to detect, measure and monitor nuclear radiation in the environment so that a radioactive substance beneath the ground can be located and monitored at a higher resolution than previously possible. These new sensors will ultimately help the recovery and regeneration of the post-disaster Fukushima region and pave the way for improved monitoring and control of radioactivity at nuclear sites worldwide.
