UT Arlington In The News

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

A UT Arlington research team says recently identified radiation detection properties of a light-emitting nanostructure built in their lab could open doors for homeland security and medical advances, according to NSF Science 360, Engineering.com, R&D Magazine and Science Newsline. In a paper published in Optics Letters, Physics Professor Wei Chen and his co-authors describe a new method to fabricate transparent nanoscintillators by heating nanoparticles composed of lanthanum, yttrium and oxygen until a transparent ceramic is formed. A scintillator refers to a material that glows in response to radiation.
