Cadets Present at the HEART ConferenceCadets Anmol Narang and Joe Kyburz gave a presentation titled "Characterization of Multilayered Composite Heavy Oxide Inorganic Scintillators" as representatives of Team Zebra 2019 Hardened Electronics and Radiation Technology (HEART) conference in San Diego, CA recently. Team Zebra (CDT Anmol Narang, CDT Joe Kyburz, CDT Tom Weatherford, CDT Nick Donze, CDT Seth Bailer, MAJ Jake Capps, MAJ Gabe Lucero, and LTC Pete Chapman) have been researching the characteristics of a novel inorganic scintillator capable of fast neutron detection this year to determine its suitability in nuclear security applications. CDT Weatherford presented the group's work at the DTRA RD-NT NSERC-Military Academy Research Symposium (N-MARS) at DTRA HQ and the team will submit their findings for publication in the Journal of Radiation Effects in the fall of 2019.
