Dr. Alireza Kargar

Dr. Alireza Kargar
MS-ME 2005, PhD NE 2009; Dr. Alireza Kargar recently attained his Ph.D. after working on a project with Prof. McGregor to develop high-energy-resolution, room-temperature-operated CdZnTe detectors. Dr. Kargar fabricated Frisch ring CdZnTe detectors with energy resolution below 0.9% FWHM at 662 keV and HgI2 Frisch ring detectors 1.7% FWHM at 662 keV. Dr. Kargar's CdZnTe detectors operated with no pulse height correction with a simple commercial off-the-shelf preamplifier. The detector volumes ranged from 0.2 cubic cm up 3.5 cubic cm. At graduation, Dr. Kargar had 22 published papers in archival journals and conference records. After graduation, Dr. Kargar worked at Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. in Watertown, MA for over 5 years. Dr. Kargar now has the position of Radiation/Nuclear Scientist at Morpho Detection, LLC in Andover, MA. Advisor: Douglas S. McGregor

CdZnTe samples shaped to be lapped, polished, and etched. The samples will be fabricated into
CdZnTe samples shaped to be lapped, polished, and etched. The samples will be fabricated into "non-contacting" Frisch grid gamma ray spectrometers.
