This paper reports on the influence that temperature during irradiation and dose-rate have on the radiation-induced free-radical yield and time stability in non de-proteinized bone. Bone from chicken legs was irradiated in the 253-293 K temperature range and with two different sources (60Co, 0.6 Gy/s and 12 MeV electrons, 6 x 10(6) Gy/s). Temperature(More)
The influence of γ-ray irradiation on the optical properties of Bi(2)O(3)-B(2)O(3)-SiO(2) glass has been investigated. Broadband infrared (IR) emission at 1310 nm with a FWHM over 200 nm is observed in the γ-ray irradiated glass. The IR luminescence depends on the γ-ray irradiation dose and the concentration of Bi(2)O(3). The thermal stability of the γ-ray(More)
The energy resolution of the barrel part of the CMS Electromagnetic Calorimeter has been studied using electrons of 20 to 250 GeV in a test beam. The incident electron's energy was reconstructed by summing the energy measured in arrays of 3×3 or 5×5 channels. There was no significant amount of correlated noise observed within these arrays. For electrons(More)
A single-particle theory of the evolution of the harmonic content of a bunched beam in a relativistic optical klystron is reported. The equations of motion of the electrons in the dispersive-magnetic-drift space are solved analytically, including the effects of the energy and angular spreads of the beam. The theory enables one to predict the optical(More)
A method was investigated to measure gamma and fast neutron doses in phantoms exposed to an epithermal neutron beam designed for neutron capture therapy (NCT). The gamma dose component was measured by TLD-300 [CaF2:Tm] and the fast neutron dose, mainly due to elastic scattering with hydrogen nuclei, was measured by alanine dosemeters [CH3CH(NH2)COOH].
