Posted November 09, 2018 07:59:56A team of researchers at Crutchfields Electronics has used the technology to design a magnetic resonance detector that can detect radioactivity from high-level radioactivity sources in the atmosphere, including nuclear explosions, and also in the ocean.
The team has developed a detector that is based on an electronic transistor, the same type used in modern computers.
This means that it can detect a variety of types of radioactivity in the air, such as gamma rays and X-rays, which can then be measured.
The researchers have already been working with the US Navy to test the new device on the submarine USS Monterey in the Gulf of Aden.
They have already identified radioactivity levels in the marine environment that are within the normal limits for human exposure to radiation.
The device is designed to work at up to 20 meters (65 feet) from the ground, making it capable of detecting up to 100 radioactivity exposures per hour.
The technology is a step in the right direction, said senior author and electrical engineer Richard Gullick, who leads the team at Crushfields Electronics.
“There’s a huge need for radioactivity monitoring in the sea and the environment, and there’s a lot of information we can gather from these kinds of signals,” he said.
“So this is a big step in helping us better understand the risk and the impact that marine pollution is having on our environment.”
According to GullICK, the MR technology has been in the works for over a decade.
“The first prototype was about a year ago and it was a lot simpler to work with, and the detector is very simple to work on.
It’s a fairly cheap component, and it’s also incredibly powerful.”
It’s been a long time coming, but we’re very excited about it,” he added.
The project, funded by the National Science Foundation, uses a device called a “factory” to manufacture the detector, which is then put into a sealed container and stored in the ground for three months before it can be placed into the sea.
The detectors are then used by the US government to measure radioactivity concentrations in the oceans from a distance.
This can be done by measuring the frequency of radiowaves, the amount of radiofrequency energy emitted and the amount absorbed by the material that is being measured.
A detector that detects radioactivity can also be used to identify sources of radioactive contamination, such like nuclear explosions.
Radioactive isotopes such as radioactively-bound plutonium, or polonium, are found in the body’s tissue and in food and water.
They are also found in air.
If a person is exposed to radioactive material, such a source could cause cancer.
The detector can also provide a more accurate measurement of radiation exposure levels than a standard radio-tracking device.
This can be a key benefit, said lead author and researcher Jeroen Oostermaier, a professor of electrical engineering at the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands.”
Because it’s a low-cost, easy-to-use device, we can measure radioactively bound polonons and other radioactivity,” Oostermahier said.
This is important because radioactivity measurements are typically only performed by a few people.
A more precise measurement of exposure levels can be made using more data and can help identify sources more easily.”
If we can get more data on the radioactivity exposure from the ocean, we could also get more accurate measurements of the level of exposure for the surrounding areas,” Oastermahiers said.
