Development and Characterization of Large La-Halide Gamma-Ray Scintillators for Future Planetary Missions


Future planetary missions such as BepiColombo are resource limited in both mass and power. Due to the proximity of the spacecraft to the Sun, the instrumentation will encounter harsh environments as far as radiation levels and thermal loads are concerned. Only radiation hard detectors that need little or no cooling will be able to successfully operate after… (More)
