Dimensional Reduction: A Design Tool for New Radiation Detection Materials

Authors


  • In memory of Dr. Jung-Hwan Song.

Abstract

Semiconductor materials for efficient hard radiation detection are identified by combining a powerful chemical concept called dimensional reduction and precise theoretical electronic structure calculations. After more than 50 years of research and development in the field, this constitutes a significant step forward in the search for new detector materials.
