Nuclear laboratory instruments
HTDS works with the leaders in nuclear instrumentation and propose a wide range of equipment and instrumentation used in nuclear power stations and treatment plants: radiation detectors, NIM electronic modules, specific software and spectrometers. These devices are also used for scientific research or for industrial applications requiring analysis systems for non-destructive measurement. They are addressed to anyone in need of electronics for pulses processing or sensors for studies in time-resolved spectroscopy, spectrometry in amplitude or in energy or measures of coincidence…

Alpha spectrometry is used for the detection, identification and determination of the activity of alpha emitting radionuclides. Natural alpha emitting radionuclides are part of the disintegration chains of Uranium-235, Uranium-238 and Thorium-232. The alpha particles (Helium nucleus) have very low penentration into the material, hence the need to use for high resolution thin detectors such as passive and implanted junction semi-conductors. For your measurements in alpha spectrometry, HTDS proposes to you: - A wide range of Silicon detectors - Alpha Suite: Chambers for measurements Alpha integrating power supply, MCS, vacuum pump... - AlphaVision software
Neutron Detectors and Imagers
Neutrons are constituent elements of atomic nuclei. When a nucleus is unstable or in an excited state, it can release some neutrons. Neutrons have no load and are therefore difficult to detect. Detection of neutrons is typically done with Helium 3, but the very high cost of this element pushes the development of new detection techniques (He 4, MCP...) � HTDS offers the latest technologies for detecting or imaging neutron fluxes with and without Helium 3.
Alpha/ Beta Counters
The Alpha and Beta metering solutions proposed by HTDS can be divided into three categories: Automatic Mono-Detector Counter: These counters are ideal when a large number of samples have to be tested with measurement times that can be very short (2-3 minutes for smear and air filter measurements) or longer for tests Environment Issues (30-60 minutes). They are totally suited for routine measurements. Manual Mono-Detector Counter: These counters are intended for laboratories for which counting is an ancillary activity or at low flows (counting time 30-60 minutes), especially for on-site measurements. These counters are the most economical. Manual Multi-Detector Counter: These counters are used for applications with a large number of samples, a need for high sensitivity and low background noise. Each independent detector has an ultra-low background noise and a high counting efficiency.
