Kromek secures U.K. contracts

Radiation detection technology firm Kromek has been granted contracts worth 150,000 pounds (188,000 euros) in the U.K.

The contracts are due over the next 12 months from the U.K.'s Technology Strategy Board to develop an enhanced detection system for breast imaging in conjunction with the U.K.'s Centre for Process Innovation. The project aims to develop conformal detectors based on a plastic electronic technology that can be wrapped around or inside regions of interest, such as breasts, limbs, suspicious packages, and parts for inspection.

The production methods will be cost-competitive compared with existing silicon technologies, Kromek said. Work has already begun on the project.
