Radiation Detectors

  • High Purity Germanium (HPGe) Detectors
  • Silicon Charged Particle Detectors
  • Scintillation Detectors
ORTEC is a leading supplier of solid-state, high resolution, semiconductor radiation detectors. These radiation detectors are used in research, commercial industry, environmental protection, health and medical physics, as well as homeland security to detect gamma-rays, X-rays, and charged particles.

As an industry pioneer, ORTEC was the first detector company to develop in-house high purity germanium (HPGe) crystal manufacturing in the early 1970’s. Since then the company has continued its leadership role in HPGe detector technologies by developing the first N-type HPGe detector and the first commercial electrically cooled HPGe detector. Recently, ORTEC released the Profile S & C Series wide energy HPGe detectors and ICS™, an advanced integrated electro-mechanical cryocooling system.

ORTEC also offers several HPGe alternatives for radiation detection. Customers may choose from a variety of room temperature silicon charged particle detectors for alpha spectroscopy and research applications; or scintillation detectors for various room-temperature radiation detection applications.
