Absorbed dose rate measurements of a 50 kV(p) handheld X-ray probe source in a water phantom are described. The X-ray generator is capable of currents of up to 40 microA, and is designed for cranial brachytherapy and intraoperative applications with applicators. The measurements were performed in a computer-controlled water phantom in which both the source(More)

Over the past several years, there has been an alarming increase in the death rate of some Florida alligators and a large decrease in the hatch rate of eggs. Several studies have been conducted to try to find a cause. These studies have ruled out toxins in the environment and high levels of toxic metals (mercury, for example). A previous study using(More)
Long ignored in blazars because of the dominance of the beamed radiation from the jet, the topic of thermal emissions in these objects is just beginning to be explored. While this emission is weak in most blazars compared to the dominant nonthermal jet components, there is a growing body of evidence that suggests that thermal emission is observable even in(More)
