Abstract

Detector development for fundamental physics and medical imaging research at the University of Glasgow’s Nuclear and Hadron Physics Group has revealed some exciting new technological developments that were adapted for use within the nuclear industry. Compact, lightweight detector systems are a hot topic in the field of nuclear decommissioning and this thesis presents a new system which could potentially assist in a more efficient and safe clean up of our nuclear legacy.
