It has been ascertained that the contribution of secondary heavy particles represents approximately 0.002 of the photon dose and 0.02 of the equivalent dose, both at 50 MeV as maximum photon energy. Expand
Ion acceleration and neutron production in hybrid gas-puff z-pinches on the GIT-12 and HAWK generators
Z-pinch experiments with a hybrid configuration of a deuterium gas puff have been carried out on the HAWK (NRL, Washington, DC) and GIT-12 (IHCE, Tomsk) pulsed power generators at 0.7 MA and 3 MA… Expand

Efficient generation of fast neutrons by magnetized deuterons in an optimized deuterium gas-puff z-pinch
Z-pinch experiments with deuterium gas puffs have been carried out on the GIT-12 generator at 3 MA currents. Recently, a novel configuration of a deuterium gas-puff z-pinch was used to accelerate… Expand
Spectra of photoneutrons produced by high-energy X-ray radiotherapy linacs.
Spectral fluence of photoneutrons generated in the head of the radiotherapeutic linac Varian 2100 C/D was measured by means of the Bonner spheres spectrometer whose active detector of thermal… Expand
Performance tests and comparison of microdosimetric measurements with four tissue-equivalent proportional counters in scanning proton therapy
Abstract This paper compares the performance of four different Tissue-Equivalent proportional counters (TEPC) first in standard radiation fields, with gamma and neutron sources, then in the mixed and… Expand
Characterisation of neutron fields around high-energy x-ray radiotherapy machines.
Photoneutron spectra around the treatment bed of a Varian Clinac 2100C machine were measured using a Bonner sphere spectrometer with results derived from the neutron spectra. Expand
