Investigations Into Methods of Improving Imaging Methods
During this period, these researchers investigated various methods of improving medical imaging methods. They have studied the effect of multiple rare-earth dopants on the quantum detection efficiency of the rare-earth phosphor Gd2O2S. Another project studied the effect of water vapor and oxygen on the performance of cesium oxide (CsI) phosphors. Finally, the researchers investigated the effect of europium co-dopant on the electronic structure and optical properties of CsI:TI.
