Single electron emission in two-phase xenon with application to the detection of coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering
A bstractWe present an experimental study of single electron emission in ZEPLIN-III, a two-phase xenon experiment built to search for dark matter WIMPs, and discuss appli-cations enabled by theExpand

Perspectives for positron emission tomography with RPCs
Abstract In this study, we address the feasibility and main properties of a positron emission tomograph (PET) based on RPCs. The concept, making use of the converter-plate principle, takes advantageExpand

Neutron-induced fission cross section of Cm-245 : New results from data taken at the time-of-flight facility n_TOF
The neutron-induced fission cross section of 245Cm was measured at n_TOF in a wide energy range and with high resolution. The energy dependence, measured in a single measurement from 30 meV to 1 MeVExpand
