The Scintillation Detector Development group at Fermilab
focuses its research on the development and enhancement of plastic
scintillation detector technology. One area of interest is the
understanding of radiation induced damage to plastic scintillators and
wavelength shifting fibers. Another important aspect of our work
is to help experimenters with the characterization of the detector
materials, including fibers, strips, connectors, and optical greases.
The SDD group at Fermilab is currently working in the development of
extruded plastic scintillators in an effort to make low-cost,
high-quality scintillating materials for very large detectors.
