One-sided imaging of large, dense objects using 511-keV photons from induced-pair production

Nuclear Science Symposium, 1997. IEEE, 1997

This work investigates the use of annihilation photons from gamma-ray-induced electron-positron pair production to inspect objects when only one side is accessible. The Z2-dependence of the pair-production cross section and the high penetration of 511-keV photons allow this method to differentiate high-Z materials in low-Z matrices. The experimental results for the dependence of the back-streaming photon yield on Z shows ...

Boron-10 Loaded BC523A Liquid Scintillator for Neutron Detection in the Border Monitoring

Nuclear Science, IEEE Transactions on, 2008

A BC523A liquid scintillator loaded with boron-10 was tested as a detector for both fast and thermal neutrons. A pulse shape discrimination (PSD) method based on a zero-crossing principle was applied to distinguish between neutron and gamma radiation. High quantum efficiency Photonis XP5500B photomultiplier was used to enhance light detection from the scintillator. This allowed a good registration of the ...

Detection efficiency of Ge(Li) and HPGe detectors for γ-rays up to 10 MeV

Nuclear Science, IEEE Transactions on, 1981

We have calibrated the relative efficiency up to 9.7 MeV for two coaxial detectors, one Ge(Li) and one high purity Ge. The efficiency curves were determined by using a combination of standard radioactive sources and (n, γ) reactions. Based on the result of this work, the general slope of the two detector efficiency curves appears to be similar and in ...

Sensitivity of the SREM RADFET dosimeters for STRV-1C to various proton and gamma radiation environments

Radiation and Its Effects on Components and Systems, 1999. RADECS 99. 1999 Fifth European Conference on, 1999

The Standard Radiation Environment Monitor (SREM) was designed in a cooperation between ESA-ESTEC, PSI and Contraves Space-the manufacturer. The monitor detects cosmic particles using 3 direction sensitive Si detectors. Total dose measurement is performed with internal and external RADFETs located at selected positions on the satellite. Their sensitivity towards protons and gammas was characterised for various energies, dose rates and ...

Simulation of triple coincidences in PET

J. Cal-Gonzá lez; E. Herranz; E. Vicente; J. M. Udí as; S. R. Dave; V. Parot; E. Lage; J. L. Herraiz 2013 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (2013 NSS/MIC), 2013

Most PET scanners are designed to detect and record gamma-ray coincidences from the annihilation of positrons coming from radiotracers. Multiple coincidences, those for which more than two gamma-rays are detected within the coincidence time window, are usually discarded. Those events can be registered and used to increase the sensitivity of the scanner and to differentiate positron-gamma emitters from pure positron ...

Some Problems in High-Energy Particle Detection and Analysis

Arthur Roberts IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, 1970

1. The kinematic analysis of high-energy events requires, in general, particle momentum measurements with an absolute error of ±50-100 MeV/c, independent of momentum. Corresponding errors are 0.05% at 100 GeV/c, less at higher momenta. To minimize the cost of magnetic deflection of high-energy particles, improvements in angular precision, hence, in particle location accuracy, are desirable. The present analysis indicates that ...

  • Fundamentals of Electrical Discharges

    Natural phenomena, such as gamma rays produced by radioactive decay processes in the soil and cosmic radiation originating from solar flares and other galactic objects, can ionize the air molecules. This chapter first discusses ionization and deionization processes in gases. This is followed by a discussion on ionization and attachment coefficients. Two typical breakdown mechanisms occur in gases, each of them operating under specifically favorable conditions: Townsend's mechanism and the streamer mechanism. Corona discharges in air can burn on the overstressed zones of hot electrodes. This kind of discharge occupies a short layer, attached to the energized conductor. When a conductor is in corona, then the electric field on the surface is somehow influenced by the surrounding ion space charge. Kaptzov's hypothesis (KH) relates to the assumption that the space charge emitted into the interelectrode gap is in amounts that hold the surface field at the onset level.
