    The radiation tolerance testing of materials or opto-electronic components in a nuclear reactor requires a careful determination of the different components of the mixed gamma-neutron field. While the characterization of the neutron field can be performed using, for example, activation foils and validated by Monte-Carlo computation codes, the experimental measurement of the in-reactor gamma dose r...

    Ultra-low input bias current linear circuits are used in several applications requiring them to work under varying conditions of temperature, humidity, radiation etc. which influence their performance. This paper presents a first time study of gamma radiation effects on ultra low input bias current linear circuits under biased conditions for small signal dc applications. Under biased conditions, r... View full abstract»

    The front-illuminated charge-coupled device (CCD) detectors in the Chandra X-ray Observatory's ACIS instrument suffered radiation damage from soft protons focused by the telescope mirror early in the mission. In the course of assessing this damage, the focal plane was temporarily warmed from its normal operating temperature (then -100°C) to +30°C. Following this "bakeout", the radiation-da...

    The temperature dependent luminescence and thermoluminescence (TL) from PbFCl single crystal scintillator as well as its annealing effect were investigated. The experimental results show that under the X-ray excitation the luminescent intensity decreases rapidly above 170 K. The temperature dependence of luminescence meets the thermal quenching principle and the luminescence intensity at room temp... View full abstract»

    Active semiconductor components in satellites are sensitive to accumulated ionization radiation dose. Radiation dose and shielding estimations for electronic components are usually carried out using NASA models of space radiation particle flux. Accurate measurement of accumulated dose during the life of a satellite is essential for optimizing radiation shielding design for electronic components. D... View full abstract»

    Function approximation is the problem of finding a system that best explains the relationship between input variables and an output variable. We propose two hybrid genetic algorithms (GAs) of parametric and nonparametric models for function approximation. The former GA is a genetic nonlinear Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm of parametric model. We designed the chromosomes in a way that geographically... View full abstract»

    The battlespace of tactical antiballistic missiles (TABMs) is mostly exoatmospheric and includes regions with negligible geomagnetic shielding, especially during geomagnetic storms. It is therefore necessary to harden TABMs against galactic cosmic ray (GCR) and solar particle event (SPE) induced single event effects (SEEs) and star tracker and focal plane array (FPA) glitches. The variability of t... View full abstract»
