The new ultra-fast transmissive (UFT) beam monitor has a huge market potential since it is designed for both particle and photon FLASH-RT and advanced-EBRT (external beam radiotherapy), as well as for nuclear and high energy physics. In addition, the plasma panel sensor (PPS) and microhexcavity-PPS also have a number of potential applications.

As mentioned in some of the previous sections, the list of possible applications for the UFT and PPS radiation detector technologies is exceptional broad. Some examples are:

  • FLASH Radiotherapy Beam Monitoring (protons, electrons, ions & photons/X-rays)
  • FLASH Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (electron IORT)
  • External Beam Radiation Therapy / EBRT (protons, electrons, ions, photons)
  • Patient Planning, QA and Dosimetry
  • Nuclear Physics Beamline Monitoring & Beam Tuning
  • High Spatial Resolution Single-Particle Imaging
  • High Speed Particle Imaging & High Resolution Time-of-Flight (e.g., ≤ 50 ps)
  • Synchrotron based Proton and Carbon-ion EBRT (transient spike monitoring)
  • Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT-EBRT)
  • Spatially Fractionated Radiotherapies (GRID, LATTICE, Microbeam, proton-Minibeam)
  • Particle CT Imaging (proton, electron & neutron)
  • Medical & Industrial Radiography
  • Detecting Radioactive Materials at a Distance (e.g., radioactive spills)
  • Non-Destructive Testing & Materials Inspection
  • Cosmic Muon Imaging
