The effect of the photon energy on the radiosensitization produced by iododeoxyuridine (IUdR) was examined using Chinese hamster cells in vitro. Radiosensitization by IUdR was considerably higher for 60 keV photons from 241Am sources than for the 860 keV photons (average energy) from 226Ra sources, under continuous low dose rate conditions applicable to(More)
International benchmarks for cross-sections qualification are very poor in experimental means able to provide information on the neutron spectrum around 1 MeV. To fill this vacancy, one possible solution is to use the activation of rhodium. The reaction of inelastic neutron scattering on this element, in the energy range of 0.5 MeV to 5 MeV, leads to the(More)
The ETNA software has been developed to compute efficiency transfer and coincidence summing corrections. Different experiments are combined to test the validity of this last facility. Point sources with multi-gamma emitters are measured at several source-to-detector distances. Experimental correction factors are determined from the variation in the peaks'(More)
Applications such as environment monitoring implying alpha emitters activity measurement associated with isotope identification, require high-energy resolution detectors. Conventional silicon detectors are inexpensive therefore widely used, although intrinsically limited in energy resolution. Thermal detection principle of cryogenic detectors introduces a(More)
