RTSD Program & Topics

The 26th International Symposium on Room-Temperature Semiconductor Detectors (RTSD) represents the largest forum of scientists and engineers developing new solid-state radiation detectors and imaging arrays. Room-temperature semiconductor radiation detectors continue to find increasing applications in such diverse fields as medicine, homeland security, astrophysics and environmental remediation. The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for discussion of the state-of-the-art of the detector technology, including materials improvement, material and device characterizations, fabrication, electronics and applications. To provide a comprehensive review, oral and poster presentations representing a broad spectrum of research and development activities emphasizing room-temperature-operating semiconductor detectors or imaging devices are sought. Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts on original work in the following RTSD-related areas:

  • X-ray and gamma ray spectroscopic detectors and systems
  • Crystal Growth and Material Characterization for radiation detectors
  • Pixel and strip detectors
  • Electrical contacts and device fabrication technology
  • Radiation Damage, Long-Term Stability and Environmental Effects
  • Organic and Perovskite Materials for Radiation Detection
  • Semiconductor Neutron Detectors
  • Imaging systems and applications
  • Spectrometer Systems for Homeland Security, Nuclear Inspections, Safeguards, Portal Monitoring, and Other Uses
