Detection of gamma rays is shown using a non-scintillating organic-based sensor composed of poly(olefin sulfone)/carbon nanotube blends. Functionalization of the polymers can be performed after polymerization to tailor their structure with different pyrene and bismuth-containing moieties not accessible by copolymerization, and a systematic improvement in sensitivity is achieved in this way.
