Engineering Silicon Carbide for Enhanced Borders and Ports Security

Developing new state-of-the-art, low-cost and radiation hard detectors is an extremely difficult challenge which can be tackled only by a multisciplinary group of scientists and engineers from various fields having access to different infrastructure.
In our project, Engineering silicon carbide for enhanced borders and ports security (-SiCure) funded by the NATO SPS programme [project number G5215] five partners from Australia (ANSTO), Croatia (RBI), Japan (QST), Portugal (UA) and Slovenia (JSI) have created a team whose main goal is to develop a SiC detector of special nuclear materials.
