Moses Lab

Research Interest

The focus of this group is to develop advanced instrumentation for nuclear medical imaging, notably PET and SPECT.  This includes development of: (1) new dense inorganic scintillators for gamma ray detection, (2) novel photodetectors for measuring scintillation light, (3) custom integrated circuits and electronics for reading out radiation sensors, (4) new detector designs and camera geometries, and (5) tomographic reconstruction algorithms for these and other novel designs.
