Sensitive Detection - Rugged Engineering

When it comes to radiation, it's critical to know the exact isotope and precise dose rate of the radioactive material to quickly initiate a plan of action. The Thermo Scientific™ RIIDEye™ X Handheld Radiation Isotope Identifier does just that. Our patented Quadratic Compression Conversion (QCC) technology provides the industry's fastest, most accurate real-time gamma source and isotopic identifications. All in an easy-to-read, full-spectrum color-coded format.

Radiation SymbolWhatever the scenario, whatever the environment our next generation of tough, high-performance RIIDs are engineered for the harshest operating conditions – so you and your team can respond immediately.

Easy Radiation ID with Patented Quadratic Compression Conversion

RIIDEye X SpectrumOur unique, patented QCC algorithm maximizes the scintillation detector capabilities of RIIDEye instruments. It resolves difficult to see low energy peaks by expanding the number of channels, while simultaneously compressing high energy peaks which improves the signal-to-noise ratio. By compressing higher energies and expanding lower energies the RIIDEye differentiates typical benign isotopes from those found in threat material, such as SNM.

U.S. Patent No. 5,608,222

Introducing SNM Assist
Special Nuclear Material can be hidden in many ways within the stream of commerce that can greatly affect its ability to be detected. To account for real world variability, SNM Assist analyzes the acquired ID spectrum in real time and automatically displays the optimum scan time to accurately detect the presence of SNM (Pu, U, Np).

The RIIDEye X operator can view the real-time spectra build of isotopes present in the environment as the identification scan is in process. Isotopes are color coded to visually alert the operator to the presence of benign, threatening or unknown sources and indicates the moment an accurate identification is made. When activated, SNM Assist automatically calculates and alternately displays the optimal ID scan time, for the current environment, with the actual time remaining.

With Real Time Spectra Building and SNM Assist, users can customize the scan duration in real time for fast, reliable and efficient results.


RIIDEye is the first commercial RIID to utilize CLYC (Cs2LiYCl6:Ce);
a dual mode scintillation crystal in the Elpasolite family whose development and commercialization was sponsored by the United States government.

With better neutron sensitivity and excellent ability to separate gamma radiation from neutron radiation, CLYC provides He3 like performance without using He3.

Unlike other He3 alternate solutions, CLYC provides superior gamma and neutron separation, allowing minimal gamma counts in the neutron counting channel – an issue that plagues many other materials.

Located in the handle of the RIIDEye, CLYC is used as the primary source for detecting neutrons while its location on the RIIDEye maximizes the detection efficiency by up to 50%, using the operator's hand as the neutron moderator.
