Innovative Materials for Radiation detection, from organic to Perovskyte
Paul SELLIN, PhD
Organic Electronics covers a number of research areas in materials science and engineering, including design of thin film organic electronic devices such as photodiodes and detector for direct radiation detection. New generation of ultralow-cost, lightweight and even flexible devices will perform functions traditionally accomplished with much more expensive components based on conventional semiconductor materials, such as silicon. In this seminar macroscopic device characteristics and advanced analysis, troubleshooting and design techniques and materials will be presented including organic polymeric semiconductors, Perovskyte and organic crystal devices.
Professor Paul Sellin received his PhD in Nuclear Physics from University of Edinburgh (UK) in 1992 in the field of semiconductor nuclear detectors. His current research interests at the University of Surrey include the development and characterisation of radiation detectors and detector materials for applications in nuclear physics, medical imaging, and security detection. His research group focuses on the characterisation and development of new detector materials, including plastic and organic scintillators for mixed field neutron/gamma detection, including digital instrumentation and SiPM readout for neutron/gamma sensitive scintillators. Other interests include radiation-hard materials for extreme radiation applications where high dose rate and/or high temperature capability is required and the application of detector technology to nuclear security science, including new modalities for hazardous material detection and identification.
