Zecotek Photonics to Develop Radiation Detection Unit With OEM Collaborator

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
SINGAPORE, May 31, 2017 — Photonics technology developer Zecotek Photonics Inc. will be working with an unidentified OEM to jointly develop a large-area, commercially ready radiation detection unit.

“We have worked closely with the scientific team of the radiation detection OEM over the past 12 months identifying the device with the best performance and the most market demand,” said A.F. Zerrouk, chairman, president and CEO of Zecotek Photonics. “We have committed to a commercially viable radiation detection device with extensive appeal to many detection applications. We look to have an operational prototype completed within the next six months and look forward to the rollout of the new device with our OEM partner.”

Last year, the manufacturer ordered Zecotek Photonics’ patented lutetium fine silicate (LFS) scintillation crystals for two applications. The first was a device for large cargo screening at land crossings; the second was tested for screening applications for luggage, bags and packages, and for high-security locations including government buildings, sports stadiums, conventions centers and other crowded venues. Due to the performance and successful testing of the LFS crystals, the two companies have committed to jointly develop a commercial unit to answer an increased call for homeland security measures.

A scintillation detection system consists of scintillation crystals, photo detectors, electric signal and processing electronics. The units can be used in multiple applications including radiation detection, assay of radioactive materials and physics research.

Zecotek Photonics develops technology, subsystems and components for medical and industrial imaging, computer-generated and real-time 3D visualization, as well as lasers for biopharmaceutical and other applications.
