Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A

  title={Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research A},
  author={David Ireland and Wim Vanderbauwhede},
The speed-up in program running time is investigated for problems of parameter estimation with nested sampling Monte Carlo methods. The example used in this study is to extract a polarisation observable from event-by-event data from meson photoproduction reactions. Various implementations of the basic algorithm were compared, consisting of combinations of single threaded versus multi-threaded, and CPU versus GPU versions. These were implemented in OpenMP and OpenCL. For the application under…

CAPTURE CROSS SECTIONS FOR THE ASTROPHYSICAL P PROCESS By Stephen J. Quinn This dissertation includes the design and development of the Summing NaI (SuN) 4π γ-ray detector at the National

Physics-informed Gaussian Process for Online Optimization of Particle Accelerators

This work applies a physics-informed Gaussian process (GP) optimizer to tune a complex system by conducting efficient global search by using a fast approximate model from physics simulations to design the GP model.

Nucleon inelastic scattering cross sections on 16 O and 28 Si

This paper reports cross section measurements of the (n, n’) and (p, p’) reactions on 16 O and 28 Si at GELINA (Geel Electron LINear Accelerator) and at the 9-MV Tandem Accelerator of IFIN-HH (Horia

Development of a fast simulator for GEM-based neutron detectors

This work presents a strategy to develop a fast simulator based on Geant4 and Garfield++ that will allow to generate enough data for a proper evaluation of the expected performance and optimization of this kind of detector.

The Belle II Physics Book

We present the physics program of the Belle II experiment, located on the intensity frontier SuperKEKB e+e- collider. Belle II collected its first collisions in 2018, and is expected to operate for

Proton-induced reactions on Fe, Cu, & Ti from threshold to 55 MeV.

Theoretical models often differ significantly from measured data in their predictions of the magnitude of nuclear reactions that produce radionuclides for medical, research, and national security

Superconducting detectors for rare event search experiments

Superconducting detectors have become an important tool in experimental astroparticle physics, which seeks to provide a fundamental understanding of the Universe. In particular, such detectors have

On the synchrotron emission in kinetic simulations of runaway electrons in magnetic confinement fusion plasmas

Developing avoidance or mitigation strategies of runaway electrons (REs) in magnetic confinement fusion (MCF) plasmas is of crucial importance for the safe operation of ITER. In order to develop

The specification is divided into a core specification that any OpenCL compliant implementation must support; a handheld/embedded profile which relaxes the OpenCL compliance requirements for handheld and embedded devices; and a set of optional extensions that are likely to move into the core specification in later revisions of the Opencl specification.
