Study of Multi-Pixel Scintillator Detector Configurations for Measuring Polarized Gamma Radiation
When a positron annihilates, two gamma photons are created with orthogonal polarizations. It is possible to use coincidence measurements where both photons undergo Compton scattering to estimate
Scintillator Pixel Detectors for Measurement of Compton Scattering
The Compton scattering of gamma rays is commonly detected using two detector layers, the first for detection of the recoil electron and the second for the scattered gamma. We have assembled detector
Photon quantum entanglement in the MeV regime and its application in PET imaging
TLDR
It is shown that the entangled simulation describes the measured correlations and, through simulation of a larger preclinical PET scanner, illustrates a simple method to quantify and remove the unwanted backgrounds in PET using the quantum entanglement information alone.
Polarisation-based coincidence event discrimination: an in silico study towards a feasible scheme for Compton-PET
TLDR
This study model a source-phantom-detector system using Geant4 and develops a coincidence classification scheme that exploits the angular correlation of scattered annihilation quanta to improve the accuracy of coincidence detection, and finds a image quality improvement when scattered coincidence events are discriminated solely by their angular correlation.
Towards optimal imaging with PET: an in silico feasibility study
TLDR
This study investigates how photon polarisation information can be exploited in PET imaging by developing a method to discriminate true coincidences using the polarisation correlation of annihilation pairs and demonstrates the potential of improving signal gain using polarisation, particularly for high photon emission rates.
Investigation of GaGG:Ce with TOFPET2 ASIC Readout for Applications in Gamma Imaging Systems
We investigated two detector modules, each consisting of a 8 × 8 matrix of GaGG:Ce crystals with a crystal size of 3 × 3 × 20 mm3 and a 3.2 mm pitch. The light is collected by a 8 × 8 silicon
Angular Correlation Effects with Annihilation Radiation
IF the two gamma-quanta emitted on the annihilation of a slowly moving positron-electron pair both undergo a Compton scattering, in view of the fact that they are polarized in perpendicular
TOFPET2: a high-performance ASIC for time and amplitude measurements of SiPM signals in time-of-flight applications
We present a readout and digitization ASIC featuring low-noise and low-power for time-of flight (TOF) applications using SiPMs. The circuit is designed in standard CMOS 110 nm technology, has 64
