Radiation Detector Laboratory
Houses the Liverpool detector characterisation and scanning system. This unique facility allows the automatic characterisation of large volume semiconductor and scintillation detector systems. State-of-the-art multichannel digital electronics are used to read out signals from novel detector systems.
Liverpool Semiconductor Detector Centre (LSDC)
A large clean room complex where semiconductor sensors are assembled into complex instruments. The facility enables the construction and testing of detector systems for use in experiments at accelerator facilities across the world. Detectors have recently been made for the future R3B experiments at FAIR and the ALPHA anti hydrogen experiment at CERN.
CTL Canberra Radiation Lab
Internationally leading radiation detection training facility used for undergraduate, postgraduate and industry training courses. Houses:
- 36 industry standard, digitally read out NaI scintillation detector
- 6 high resolution, low background germanium detector based counting systems,
- Bench top x–ray CT systems,
- A large neutron facility with He-3, BF3 and scintillator based fast and thermal neutron detectors.
Medical Teaching and Research Laboratory (MTRL)
The Medical Teaching and Research Laboratory (MTRL) is a unique facility in the UK. It houses a SPECT/CT scanner dedicated to MSc and CPD teaching and research. The scanner at Daresbury is a GE Infinia SPECT gamma camera with Hawkeye single slice CT, manufactured in 2006 and previously in use at St James’ hospital in Leeds.
