High energy 3-D nuclear medicine imaging using coded apertures with a conventional gamma camera

L. Zhang; R. C. Lanza; B. K. P. Horn; R. E. Zimmerman 1998 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record. 1998 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (Cat. No.98CH36255), 1998

Standard nuclear medicine imaging uses photon collimation and thus suffers from very low sensitivity, especially if high energy (>511 keV) isotopes are to be imaged. Coded aperture techniques use a coded pattern mask instead of a collimator to encode the photon source distribution, thus every photon source contributes to the signal in the whole detector area. It significantly improves the ...


Fusarium Graminearum spore detection using magnetic resonance force microscopy

Mike Rowe; Anh Dinh 2012 25th IEEE Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE), 2012

In this paper, Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy for use in the detection of mold spores is proposed. The proposed sensor uses an array of MEMS cantilevers to detect the chemical composition of a sample. That sample is adhered to the surface below the cantilever using an antifungal antibody. Using MRFM techniques, it is possible to determine the chemical composition of ...


Absolute frequency calibration of the CO<inf>2</inf> isotope laser transitions

Charles Freed; Robert G. O'Donnell; A. H. M. Ross IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, 1976

The frequencies of rare CO2 isotope lasers are measured by comparison with 12C16O2 reference lines and with each other. Improved heterodyne techniques are used to generate difference frequencies in a liquid-nitrogen-cooled HgCdTe varactor photodiode. Microwave frequency counter measurements of the difference frequencies are then used to calculate the band centers, rotational constants and transition frequencies with an estimated accuracy of ...

  • Constraining the Denudational Response to Faulting

    Denudation links tectonics with climate by changing topographic loads and promoting the drawdown of CO2. Measurements of denudation are a key to understanding this link. In particular, they are required to test and calibrate geodynamic models, to evaluate the tectonic control on landscape evolution, to quantify the geomorphic impact of faulting and seismicity, and to assess the role of tectonically driven denudation in stabilizing Earth's climate. We review techniques used to measure denudation, and weathering on timescales relevant to faulting and the dynamics of fault zones, with particular attention paid to the use of hydrometric data and cosmogenic isotopes. Using selected examples, we illustrate the application of these techniques to problems ranging from soil formation and coseismic erosion of earthquake epicentral areas to the erosion of orogens and estimation of catchment-scale erosion and weathering fluxes. The examples show that faulting is the Earth's premier erosion and weathering engine. Globally, erosion scales with tectonic forcing. Locally, fluvial incision and landscape lowering are correlated with faulting and seismic activity. Thus, tectonically active areas yield disproportionate amounts of sediment. Erosion refreshes rock surfaces in these areas, thereby enhancing chemical weathering rates and CO2 consumption. The effects of climate variability and change are evident in the patterns and rates of erosion and weathering. However, they are almost always superimposed on a stronger tectonic signal. We highlight the potential of cosmogenic nuclides to quantify present and past rates and patterns of denudation associated with faulting. Finally, we identify outstanding challenges for future work: (a) to characterize crustal deformation, climate, and denudation over their full range of time and length scales; (b) to analyze the geomorphic imp act and stratigraphic record of recent earthquakes; (c) to identify the processes, thresholds, and feedback mechanisms that control global weathering and regulate the long-term climate; and (d) to provide constraints that help to mitigate the risks associated with geomorphic processes triggered by earthquakes. Constraining the denudational response to faulting will help to meet these challenges.
