David Goodman, Ph.D.
Dr. David Goodman earned his BSE, MSE, and Ph.D. at the University of Michigan. As a research engineer at H3D, Inc., his work focuses on a wide variety of topics ranging from isotope identification and nuclear coolant trending to fast, computational-efficient 3-D gamma-ray imaging. He currently leads a Phase II DOE SBIR to develop hot cell-capable CdZnTe imaging spectrometers.
H3D, Inc. is an upstart radiation detection company that develops and manufactures 3-D pixelated CdZnTe spectrometers. These spectrometers fit into the “goldilocks zone” between HPGe and scintillator detectors, offering better than 1% FWHM energy resolution in a rugged, room-temperature package. The “3-D” nature of pixelated CdZnTe detectors, where a 6 cm3 crystal is subdivided into nearly 5000 subdetectors, also enables gamma-ray imaging.
We will present H3D’s recent progress on DOD and DOE research ranging from isotopic monitoring of commercial nuclear power plants to high-resolution, 3-D imaging, as well as discuss the process of transferring new research ideas to real-world products.
