The use of conventional imaging techniques becomes problematic when faced with challenging logistics and confined environments. In particular, such scenarios are not unusual in the field of archaeological and mining explorations as well as for nuclear waste characterization. For these applications, even the use of muography is complicated since the detectors have to be deployed in difficult areas with limited room for instrumentation, e.g., narrow tunnels. To address this limitation, we have…

Portable Resistive Plate Chambers for Muography in confined environments

Muography (or muon radiography) is an imaging technique that relies on the use of cosmogenic muons as a free and safe radiation source. It can be applied in various fields such as archaeology, civil



Towards portable muography with small-area, gas-tight glass Resistive Plate Chambers

An overview on the guiding principles, the detector development and operational experiences, and the future direction for an improved second prototype are discussed, focusing primarily on a recently adopted serigraphy technique for the resistive coating of the glass plates.

A portable muon telescope for multidisciplinary applications

Muon tomography or “muography” is an emerging imaging technique that uses cosmogenic muons as the radiation source. Due to its diverse range of applications and the use of natural radiation,

A portable muon telescope based on small and gas-tight resistive plate chambers

The first steps in the development of a small-size muon telescope based on glass resistive plate chambers with small active area based on compact size, light weight, gas tightness and robustness are reported.

Development of a Portable Muography Detector for Infrastructure Degradation Investigation

A portable muography detector was developed for measuring infrastructure degradation and its performance was tested. The detector consists of two muon position sensitive detectors (mu-PSDs) of the
