flexibility to deliver clever
and custom scintillation
components

Scintacor, the new name for Applied Scintillation Technologies, has a range of academic links with our technical staff originating from University College London (UCL), University of Strathclyde and Imperial College.

Scintacor sponsor several doctorate programs in conjunction with UK Universities:

University College London, London Centre for Nanotechnology and the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Scintacor sponsor a PhD student working with Professor Richard Jackman and Scintacor CTO Professor Glenn Tyrrell to develop graphene for technological applications.

University of Oxford Chemistry Department. Scintacor sponsor a PhD student working with the John Foord Research Group run by Professor John Foord, focusing on nanomaterials.

We also have student collaborations with Kings College London (KCL) and University College London (UCL).

Our contribution to the EU Fifth Framework programme on 3D-radiation imaging detectors (3D-RID) has involved collaboration with:

  • University of Glasgow
  • Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan (KTH Stockholm, Sweden)
  • Mitthögskolan (Sundsvall, Sweden)
  • Czech Technical University (Prague, Czech Republic)
  • University of Freiburg (Freiburg, Germany)

Since 2009 we have participated in the Harlow College Manufacturing and Engineering Apprenticeships scheme, hosting apprentices for 6 week periods. Scintacor have hosted four apprentices in total. Luke Parsons now works full time at the company since the successful completion of his apprenticeship.

We have also been a participant in the annual Shell Technology Enterprise Programme (STEP) that encourages the use of high skill level undergraduates in business and technology environment.
