Abstract:

The main objective of this 3-year project is to grow high quality Bil3 single crystals 1cm3 in volume via a high temperature modified Bridgman crystal growth technique. We will then test and analyze the crystals using a variety of techniques to determine crystal quality lattice parameters, lattice strain, impurities, etc. and potential methods to improve Bil3 crystals. Finally, test structures will be designed and their performance will be assessed using a variety of small, calibrated gamma-ray sources available at the University of Florida.
