The aim of this study was to investigate the dosimetric characteristics of the electron beams generated by the light intraoperative accelerator, Liac® (SORDINA, Italy), using Monte Carlo (MC) calculations. Moreover we investigated the possibility of characterizing the Liac® dosimetry with a minimal set of dosimetric data. In fact accelerator commissioning(More)
PURPOSE To characterize a synthetic diamond dosimeter (PTW Freiburg microDiamond 60019) in high dose-per-pulse electron beams produced by an Intra Operative Radiation Therapy (IORT) dedicated accelerator. METHODS The dosimetric properties of the microDiamond were assessed under 6, 8 and 9 MeV electron beams by a NOVAC11 mobile accelerator (Sordina IORT(More)
Classifiers built through supervised learning techniques are widely used in computational biology. Examples are neural networks, decision trees and support vector machines. Recently, an extension of Regularized Generalized Eigenvalues Classifier (ReGEC) has been proposed, in which prior knowledge is included. When knowledge is formalized as a set of linear(More)
OPERA is a dedicated experiment for the observation of nm into nt oscillations through t appearance using a 730 km long baseline nm beam from CERN to the Gran Sasso underground laboratory. The detector is equipped with two spectrometers for muon identification and charm background rejection. Bakelite RPCs are used as inner trackers inside the iron magnet of(More)
OPERA is part of the CNGS project and it is an experiment dedicated to the observation of long-baseline into oscillations through appearance. Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs) with bakelite electrodes are used to instrument the 2 cm gaps between the magnetized iron slabs of the two spectrometers. The RPC installation ended in may 2004 on the first(More)
