Title: Study of Viability and Challenges of using SiPMs as an Alternative to PMT’s in Scintillation Detectors for Nuclear Safeguards

Abstract

The goals of this project are to identify fundamental and practical problems and features with SiPMs as they relate to IAEA detector needs, Identify published results and implementations of scintillation detectors tat use SiPMs that are of interest to IAEA, asses how effectively the fundamental problems were addresses, and perform simulations and experiments as needed to reproduce crucial results and make recommendations.
