Construction of the first stage of the Pierre Auger Observatory has begun. The aim of the Observatory is to collect unprecedented information about cosmic rays above 10 eV: The first phase of the project, the construction and operation of a prototype system, known as the engineering array, has now been completed. It has allowed all of the sub-systems that(More)
In this work, the procedures for safety assessment in the close proximity of cellular communications base-station antennas at three different frequencies (900, 1800 and 2170 MHz) are analysed. For each operating frequency, we have obtained and compared the distances to the antenna from the exposure places where electromagnetic fields are below reference(More)
In this paper, the specific absorption rate (SAR) in scaled human head models is analysed to study possible differences between SAR in the heads of adults and children and for assessment of compliance with the international safety guidelines, while using a mobile phone. The finite-difference time-domain method (FDTD) has been used for calculating SAR values(More)
In today's world, where large numbers of people migrate for reasons that are not strictly economic, the preservation of the cultural identity of migrants has attracted scrutiny. Indigenous populations are one of the most vulnerable groups in Mexico because of their economic disadvantages and their ethnic identity. Paradoxically, however, their ethnic(More)
The Monte Carlo code penelope is benchmarked for X-ray beams with energies between 30 and 300 keV. The results of different simulations performed with penelope are compared with those obtained with a semi-empirical computational model and with experimental measurements. Half-value layer indexes obtained from the attenuation curves for Al and Cu and depth(More)
We have studied the procedure commonly recommended by dosimetry protocols for the determination of the absorbed dose in water for low-energy x-rays beams, generated with potentials up to 150 kVp. X-ray beams with different spectra obtained with the XCOMP5R code were transported using the Monte Carlo code PENELOPE in order to calculate backscatter factors(More)
A simple analytical expression aiming to calculate the backscatter factor used in dosimetry protocols to determine the absorbed dose in water for low energy X-rays beams is presented. This expression is based on the linear dependence of the backscatter factor with the generating potential, for fixed values of the half-value layer. The results of a recent(More)
We present exact Hartree–Fock–Bogoliubov calculations with the finite range density dependent Gogny force using a triaxial basis. For the first time, all contributions to the Pairing and Fock Fields arising from the Gogny and Coulomb interactions as well as the two-body correction of the kinetic energy have been calculated in this basis. We analyze the(More)
