Unveiling the Hidden Symphony: Nuclear Instrumentation

Amplifying the Voice of Radiation

Detecting and analysing ionizing radiation requires a delicate dance between physics and electronics. While radiation interacts with detectors, generating a faint electrical signal, these signals need amplification and processing before revealing their secrets. Nuclear Instrumentation steps in, acting as the conductor, transforming these whispers into a clear melody for scientific interpretation.

The Symphony of Signals:

  • Signal Conditioning: Our team plays a crucial role in composing the first movement, utilizing analog preamplifiers to carefully shape and amplify the raw signal from the detector.
  • Signal Processing: The second movement involves transforming the conditioned signal into a language scientists can understand. This can involve digital, analog, or a combination of both techniques, depending on the specific application.

Our Instrumental Expertise:

  • Mastering Diverse Detectors: We are adept at crafting charge and current-sensitive preamplifiers ideal for neutron detection, as well as voltage-sensitive preamplifiers for scintillation detectors. Each plays a specific role in the symphony of nuclear detection.
  • Composing Cutting-Edge Solutions: Our current repertoire includes:
    • Continuous-field neutron dosimeters: Measuring the steady hum of neutron radiation.
    • Pulsed-field neutron preamplifiers: Deciphering the rapid bursts of neutrons encountered in specific environments.
    • Advanced charge preamplifiers: Refining the technology for clearer signal amplification.
    • Portable power supplies: Ensuring our instruments perform seamlessly, even on the go.
    • Noise-canceling filters: Isolating the melody of the signal from the background noise.
    • Digital pulse shaping and analysis systems: Composing the final movement, extracting meaningful information from the processed signal for diverse applications, including pulsed and continuous neutron fields.
