Kromek is about to start working with the University of Surrey as part of a project to develop high efficiency radiation detectors for use in nuclear security. This project has been awarded by the U.S. Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).

Surrey will be working on this five-year project to develop a new class of materials called nanocomposite organic scintillators. These materials have the potential to be used in next generation radiation detectors thanks to their sensitivity to nuclear radiation.

Kromek will lend its expertise throughout the project to develop performance testing, modelling and prototyping using the new scintillator material developed by Surrey.

Arnab Basu (Kromek CEO) said: “Kromek has always been at the fore-front of detector technology and we are very excited to be working with the University of Surrey to help develop the use of these new materials as detectors in nuclear security.”

The mission of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) is to safeguard the United States and its allies from chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high-yield explosive (CBRNE) weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by providing capabilities to reduce, eliminate and counter the threat and mitigate its effects.
