The evolution of silicon sensors for real-time radiation dosimetry is essential for new cancer treatments that incorporate small or mixed radiation fields. At the Centre for Medical Radiation Physics, University of Wollongong, Australia, such sensors are being designed, developed and tested in a wide variety of radiation oncology modalities including megavoltage radiotherapy, brachytherapy,...
Prof. Mihael Makek (University of Zagreb, Faculty of Science, Department of Physics)
The Compton scattering of gamma rays has lately received a growing interest in developing medical physics applications such as Positron Emission Tomography and Compton camera based Single-photon Emission Computed Tomography, as well as in research involving tests of fundamental quantum mechanical laws, such as entanglement. A common method of detection and reconstruction of gamma Compton...
20. Development of Advanced Room Temperature Silicon Drift Detectors and Electronics for Synchrotron Radiation, X-ray Astronomy and Astrophysics
Dr Andrea Vacchi (Udine Univ & INFN)
The realization of a tracking system based on large area silicon drift detectors (SDD), within the frame of the ALICE-LHC experiment, has given rise to a coherent effort to adapt the whole technological framework of large area SDD to the field of low energy X-ray detection with high spectroscopy resolution. The scientific drive that have set the specifications for this effort, which is...
