January 7, 2019 – NOVA Scientific, Inc. was granted a U.S. Department of Energy SBIR award to develop, refine, and commercialize a large format (150mm) solid-state neutron imaging detector for cold to epithermal energies, based on its unique patent-protected neutron-sensitive microchannel plate (MCP) technology. This large area time-of-flight (TOF) detector, with integrated electronic imaging readout, … Continue reading NOVA Scientific Receives Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Award from the Department of Energy (DOE)
NOVA Scientific’s recently upgraded neutron imaging demountable is now equipped with a highly user friendly and ‘turn-key’ imaging and ultra-fast timing Delay Line Readout from Surface Concept (Mainz, Germany), capable of very high spatial and ultra-fast timing resolution – in a wide range of formats up to 150mm. A link to the demountable detector brochure can be found here, and a link to our joint website can be found here.
Contact us directly for more information about our customized demountable neutron detector solutions, including square or rectangular detection areas as well as alternate readouts: phosphor screen, single- and multi-anodes, crossed grid, Wedge and Strip, Medipix/Timepix, and Resistive Anode.
April 10, 2018 – NOVA Scientific was awarded US Patent 9,941,438, which extends the neutron response of microchannel plate (MCP) neutron imaging detectors well beyond thermal neutron energies into the higher ‘epithermal’ energy range (0.1 eV – 100 eV). This advances the state-of-the art in epithermal neutron imaging and detection, providing both very high resolution … Continue reading US Patent #9,941,438
August 9, 2017 – NOVA Scientific was issued EU patent #2,859,381, expanding our international coverage for our highly unique gamma ray discrimination and rejection approach with neutron-sensitive MCPs. This continues NOVA’s ongoing strategy of expanding and strongly protecting our pioneering innovation and continuing advances in neutron-sensitive MCP detection technology.
