Kairos Sensors presented at IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference


Congratulations to Professor Edward Cazalas and Ph.D. student Jesse Snow of the University of Utah, Nuclear Engineering in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, for their presentation titled “An Organic Perovskite-Graphene Device for Radiation Detection ”. This presentation highlighted Kairos’ APeX sensor, which experimentally demonstrated high sensitivity to mammography photon energies and exposure rates. Other key collaborators that helped build, test, and characterize these devices are perovskite expert Dr. Wanyi Nie of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), graphene expert Dr. Elias Torres of Graphenea, Inc, and the inventor of this technology, Kendon Shirley of Kairos Sensors, LLC. Special thanks is given to our partners at Graphenea, Inc who graciously supplied the graphene transistor chips for the detectors that were built.
