Woon-Seng Choong is a Staff Scientist in the Applied Nuclear Physics program. His research interests focus on the development of instrumentation for radiation detection and imaging, primarily for biomedical imaging and homeland security applications (i.e., PET, SPECT, CT). This includes development of: (1) new dense inorganic scintillators for gamma ray detection, (2) novel photodetectors for measuring scintillation light, (3) custom integrated circuits and electronics for reading out radiation sensors, (4) new detector designs and camera geometries, and (5) tomographic reconstruction and machine learning algorithms for applications in radiation detection and imaging.
