Alpha Spectra, Inc. is a global supplier of scintillation detectors. As experts who have been in the industry for 30+ years, we specialize in working with our customers to design quality radiation detectors that provide the highest level of performance and engineered reliability. These designs have been used in many laboratories. We produce both special prototype gamma radiation detectors and large run commodity type detectors.
ASI delivers scintillation detectors for numerous commercial, industrial and research applications. These uses include: We cooperate with our customers from design to production in order to develop detectors that meet strict performance requirements. Special type units that we have built include: ultra-low background counting systems; special pixilated multi-element Phoswich arrays; ruggedized environmental monitors; and special L-well type annular detectors for Compton suppression. Scintillation materials that we build detectors from include: NaI(Tl), BGO, CsI(Na), Cs(Tl), Cs(pure), plastic, and others.
