Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) Radiation Detector: A CZT radiation detector converts gamma photons from radioactive substances into electronic pulses, and counts the pulses received over a set period. Geiger Mueller-based detectors require much more volume to detect radiation than a CZT – that is sensitive enough to detect radiation at 0.1 millirem per hour. The use of CZT radiation sensors has been constrained by the high price of the crystals that can cost up to $800 each, but RFTrax developed a proprietary process for making CZT sensors at much lower cost to manufacture detectors for a fraction of the cost of conventional CZT crystals.
