Inrad Optics Will Showcase Award Winning Scintinel™ Stilbene at Nuclear Science Symposium

November 14, 2018

Inrad Optics will be exhibiting at the IEEE 2018 Nuclear Science Symposium (NSS) and Medical Imaging Conference (MIC) will be held at the International Convention Centre Sydney, in Sydney, Australia the week of of Nov. 10 – 17.

At the show, the Inrad Optics team will be promoting its award winning Scintinel™ Stilbene. Crystalline stilbene is an organic scintillator used for radiation detection and is well-suited for discrimination between fast neutrons and a gamma-ray background. A fast neutron is one with kinetic energy above approximately 1 MeV. Fast neutron counting, spectroscopy, and imaging have applications in medicine, research, defense, and homeland security.

Inrad Optics produces stilbene using a proprietary low-temperature solution growth technology. This method yields high-quality, low-stress, large form factor material. All stilbene crystal growth, fabrication, and polishing is performed at our Northvale, NJ facility, ensuring complete traceability and satisfaction with every single crystal.
