Organizational Activities

CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation. Prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world. CEA is active in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. In each of these fields CEA maintains a cross-disciplinary culture of engineers and researchers, building on the synergies between fundamental and technological research.



Role in the Project

CEA-LIST designs new algorithms for neutron/gamma discrimination faster than the previous one. The key of this development is the use of standard plastic scintillators and the enhancement of detection capabilities by a high frequency digitalization (up to 1GHz with real time signal treatment). Algorithmic concepts and electronics design in SCINTILLA is carried out by CEA-LIST. Concerning CZT miniature system CEA-LIST works on embedding signal and information treatment to make it usable by first responders with minimal radioactive training.
CEA-DEN has a long experience in simulation in view of optimising and simulating the behaviour of sensors. CEA-DEN uses this experience to design the optimal shape and size of plastic scintillators.
CEA-LETI works on the development and test of a large field of view, efficient, high energy resolution, high spatial resolution, portable, and cost effective gamma camera for radioactive source detection, localization and characterization.
