  • Quantitative assessment of SNP discrimination for computational molecular beacons

    The ability to discriminate nucleic acid sequences is necessary for a wide variety of applications: high throughput screening, distinguishing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), molecular computing, differentiating biological markers, fingerprinting a specific sensor response for complex systems, etc. Hybridization-based target recognition and discrimination is central to the operation of nucleic acid microsensor systems. Therefore developing a quantitative correlation between mishybridization events and sensor output is critical to the accurate interpretation of results. Additionally, knowledge of such correlation can be used to design intelligent sensor systems that incorporate mishybridization noise into system design. Using experimental data produced by introducing single mutations (single nucleotide polymorphisms, SNPs) in the probe sequence of computational catalytic molecular beacons (deoxyribozyme gates) [Stojanovic &amp; Stefanovic, 2003], we investigate correlations between free energy of the target-probe complex and the measured fluorescence of the deoxyribozyme gate. Experimental data for forty-five SNP- containing probe sequences are compiled and compared against the true probe sequence to determine the relationship between position, type of mutation, and the fluorescence level of the molecular beacon. The sequence set accounts for every possible SNP for a fifteen-base probe. Experiments are conducted using a 55 mul detection volume containing a modified YESi<sub>A</sub>(E6) deoxyribozyme molecular beacon (100 nM) [Stojanovic et al., 2001], TAMRA substrate (1 muM) and input sequences (2 muM). Using free energy as a first- approximation of the energetic interactions that occur during target-probe recognition, we generate empirical data for each target-probe pair using a nucleic acid hybridization thermodynamics server called HyTher (http://ozone2.chem.wayne.edu/). HyTher uses empirical fits of experimentally measured data to generate hybridization thermodynamic predictions for nucleic acid sequence pairs. Empirical data for all target-probe combinations are correlated with experimental fluorescence measurements to determine a quantitative link between target-probe hybridization free energy and molecular beacon fluorescence for each SNP-containing probe. We investigate Bayesian- based classification approaches as well as combinatorial design based methods for identifying and classifying mismatch patterns that produce similar fluorescence levels

  • Development of the fiber-optic sensor with a large surface area to measure radioactive contamination in soil at nuclear facility site

    Once decommissioning of a nuclear facility is completed, it shall be confirmed if its site meets the site release criteria. For this the residual radioactivity in the site should be measured and assessed. This paper developed and characterized the fiber-optic sensor with a large surface area for measurement of radioactivity in soil at nuclear facility site, which is less time-consuming due to ease of measurement. The fiber-optic sensor consisted of a radiation sensing probe including scintillator panel and light guide and a transmission optical fiber. The light measuring system was assembled combining it with photomultiplier tube, pre-amplifier, multichannel analyser and display. Several measurements using the light measuring system showed that, as for measuring time for measurement of cesium-137 source, 1,800 sec was the optical measurement duration, and as for reflector, aluminium foil was the best.

  • Method applied for the HPGe detector

    Gamma ray spectrometry is a passive non destructive assay most commonly used to identify and quantify the radionuclides present in the complex huge objects such as nuclear waste packages. The treatment of spectra from the measurement of nuclear waste is performed in two steps: the first step is to extract the raw data from the spectra (energies and net photoelectric absorption peaks areas) and the second step is to determine the detection efficiency of the measured scene. The establishment by numerical modeling of the detection efficiency of the measured scene requires numerical modeling of both the measuring device (in this case a hyper pure germanium detector HPGe) and numerical modeling of the measured object. Numerical detector modeling is also called diode characterization, and has a spatial response equivalent to these of the real HPGe detector. This characterization is essential for the quantification of complex and non reproducible huge objects for which the detection efficiency can not be determined empirically. The Nuclear Measurement and Valuation Laboratory (LMNE) at the Atomic Energy Commission Valduc (CEA Valduc) has developed a new methodology for characterizing the HPGe detector. It has been tested experimentally with a real diode present in the laboratory (P-type planar detector). The characterization obtained with this methodology is similar to these of a real HPGe detector with an uncertainty approaching 5 percents. It is valid for a distance ranging from 10cm to 150cm, an angle ranging from 0 to 90 degrees and energy range from 53kev to 1112keV. The energy range is obtained with a source of Barium133 and a source of Europium152. The continuity of the detection efficiency curve is checked between the two sources with an uncertainty less than 2 percents. In addition, this methodology can be extrapolated to any type of detector crystal geometry (planar).

  • Investigation of strong interactions between light nuclei at superlow energies using Z-pinch plasma flow

    In the last 10 years, the advent of high power ion beams (HPIB) gave new opportunities to use them as an instrument in some areas of the applied and fundamental physics such as: plasma coherent radiation, equation of solid state, controlled fusion, stability issues. This paper suggests the novel HPIB application for fundamental nuclear physics, namely for the measurement of nuclear reaction cross-sections of light elements in the range of infra low energies of 100-2000 eV. In fact, existing experimental data on cross-sections for those reactions covers the range only above 6-10 keV and respective values are higher than 10/sup -31/ cm/sup 2/. The proposed novel approach will decrease several orders the threshold value of cross-sections measured and provide new information on charge symmetry of nuclear forces and on the mechanism involving exchange meson currents. We propose to use the high intensity radially converging ion flow generated during the plasma liner implosion at the high power pulsed generator. For the d+d, d+t, p+d reactions products' registration the scintillator X-rays, neutron spectrometers and charge particle track detectors will be used. The lower threshold of the cross-section value measured by the proposed method could be as low as 10/sup -40/ cm/sup 2/. In the paper are given the various experimental schemes, calculations of the cross-section values and results of the preliminary study.

  • Book review - An introduction to the physics of high energy accelerators

    Review: [An Introduction to the Physics of High Energy Accelerators, D. A. Edwards and J. J. Syphers]This book is an outgrowth of a course given by the authors at various universities and particle accelerator schools. It starts from the basic physics principles governing particle motion inside an accelerator, and leads to a full description of the complicated phenomena and analytical tools encountered in the design and operation of a working accelerator. The book covers acceleration and longitudinal beam dynamics, transverse motion and nonlinear perturbations, intensity dependent effects, emittance preservation methods and synchrotron radiation. These subjects encompass the core concerns of a high energy synchrotron. The authors apparently do not assume the reader has much previous knowledge about accelerator physics. Hence, they take great care to introduce the physical phenomena encountered and the concepts used to describe them. The mathematical formulae and derivations are deliberately kept at a level suitable for beginners. After mastering this course, any interested reader will not find it difficult to follow subjects of more current interests. Useful homework problems are provided at the end of each chapter. Many of the problems are based on actual activities associated with the design and operation of existing accelerators.

  • Building better management teams through process measurement systems

    The authors review the application of a team-developed measurement methodology in a service knowledge worker organization. The site is a computer engineering support function (Plant Operating Systems Group, or POS) within a large utility, the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). A customer focus requires feedback measures for continuous improvement of service processes. Internal service functions require acknowledgement of the internal/external customer concept by the management team. The authors address these and other difficulties of group measurement development.<<ETX>>

  • Nucleus detection on propidium iodide stained digital slides

    With the advent of digital microscopy in pathology traditional diagnostic methods are inevitably revisited and compared to arising new approaches. Image processing based solutions are developed to replace methods applied through decades. Ploidy analysis traditionally is a flow cytometry (FCM) area, but reproducing its results with computer based image processing techniques (ICM - Image Cytometry) on digitalized specimen could have a few benefits of its own. This article aims to explore the possibilities of applying image processing to this field. The process is using the type of sample used by FCM, propidium iodide stained cell nuclei. A droplet of the specimen was placed on a glass slide and digitized. We created an image processing algorithm to detect the nuclei and measure their properties to support the forming of measurement- based, objective and reproducible diagnoses. This article also introduces a simple method for quantitative validation of segmentation algorithms that helped us to prioritize the further efforts in algorithm development.

  • State-of-art in regulatory decision making process for a Nuclear Fuel Cycle Facility

    Risk is inherent in every activity taken up by human beings be it potential or obvious, it is accepted or tolerated. Risk posed due to nuclear industry has always been a cause of concern to the individual, society, government and the regulator. The Nuclear Fuel Cycle Faculty (NFCF) encompassing mining to waste management activities has been diligently associated with diversified risks. The risk management for a NFCF right from Siting stage through the De- commissioning stage has been a vital issue in the Consenting process. The regulatory decision at every stage is based on a comprehensive review and assessment of risk and the safety measures available to contain it. It is informed to the management of the NFCF as a part of review process to have a step-by step approach in identification of hazards, assessment of frequency and consequence of events and estimation of risks. This exercise shall facilitate the review and assessment process to arrive at a logical and judicious decision. The Risk based evaluation and review process is a systematic and structured method addressing various regulatory concerns and risk insights, along with other important information, to assist in making decisions. Because there are many facets of NFCF to consider (such as safety, barriers to defense in depth, design margins, techno-economic issues, etc), using a structured process can facilitate in making transparent, comprehensive, and consistent risk informed decisions. The Risk Based Informed Decision Making Process(RBIDMF) is in its evolving stage with respect to regulatory decision making functions of NFCF. The fourstep process involved in the risk information review of NFCF is detailed. The process involves submission of relevant documents and discussions with the NFCF proponents on various safety related issues. An approach model to integrate the risk information with the decision making process is presented. This concept considers the rationale of linking the perception of risk associated with activities along with the risk agreeable / acceptance criteria of the regulator. The objective of safe assessment and review is achieved through a comprehensive, strucured and systematic study of the risk associated with the activities of NFCF at various stages like Siting, Construction, Commissioning, Operation and De-Commissioning. The prognostic view of established and responsive regulatory framework ensures safe and rational decisions with the consensus and acceptance of all concerned.

  • Direct measurement of the soft-error immunity on the DRAM well structure by using the nuclear microprobe

    The soft-error evaluation method using the nuclear microprobe has been demonstrated. This method realized the quantitative study of the charge collection which induces the soft-error event. The retrograde well structure with the double buried p/sup +/ layers was found to be more effective for the soft-error immunity of DRAMs, as compared with the conventional well structure on the p/sup -/epi/p/sup +/ substrate. These results were well proved by the simulation results. The evaluation method using high-energy nuclear microprobe gives the principle to optimize the well structure for the soft-error immunity of advanced DRAMs.
