Fast Neutron Detection – Novel Approach for Higher Sensitivity

Arktis Radiation Detectors Ltd has developed a platform technology for detecting ionizing radiation using compressed noble gas. The technology's unique capabilities for direct fast neutron detection and gamma radiation detection enable several novel applications in numerous vertical markets.

Passive Screening

Arktis offers unique features for passive screening (including Radiation Portal Monitoring) applications:

  • Single technology covers gamma and neutron detection
  • Capability to detect heavily shielded special nuclear material
  • More data on the radiation source allows better assessment of threat potential
