Abstract:

This report is the culmination of a series of small projects from fiscal years 2011 through 2014. These projects sought a material that not only exhibited a measureable effect when dosed with X-rays 5 seconds using 80 to100 kilovolts kV, 5 milliamperes mA, tungsten W target but could also withstand temperature extremes encountered during processing and potential application.U The result of these efforts was a composite material that would hold a quasi-permanent electric charge and rapidly discharge the electric charge upon X-ray exposure. The composite material combined the properties of an electret and an X-ray photoconductor, with a measurable charge maintained for at least a period of hours and an X-ray response occurring within an increment of time that depended upon incident X-ray power.
