    The sensitivity of medical radiographs for the contrast agent iodine can be improved by multispectral imaging techniques. Three different shadow projections of the object to be imaged are taken by using three distinct primary X-ray spectra. The corresponding material-selective projections of iodine, bone and tissue masses are generated by combining appropriately the shadow projections. A nonlinear... View full abstract»

    The performance of zero cross-over timing systems of the constant fraction or amplitude rise time compensated type using coaxial Ge(Li) detectors is analyzed with special attention to conditions that compromise their energy-independence advantage. The outcome is verified against existing experimental results, and the parameters that lead to minimum dispersion, as well as the value of the dispersio... View full abstract»

    The timing of gamma ray radiation in systems using high purity coaxial germanium detectors is analyzed and compared to that of systems using Ge(Li) detectors. The analysis takes into account the effect of the residual impurities on the electric field distribution, and hence on the rate of rise of the electrical pulses delivered to the timing module. Conditions under which the electric field distri... View full abstract»

    Doppler processing is an established method for obtaining spatial resolution of objects which exhibit radial motion relative to an observing sensor. When applied to rotating objects, Doppler processing yields resolution in cross-range along an axis normal to both object rotation and line-of-sight axes. In this case, the cross-range resolution performance is dictated by the angular interval over wh... View full abstract»

    The results are reported for a comprehensive analytical and experimental study of galactic cosmic-ray-induced errors in MOS devices. An error rate model is described which utilizes exact expressions for a path-length distribution function and a Linear Energy Transfer (LET) spectrum for the cosmic ray environment to calculate the expected cosmic-ray-induced error rate in space for a given parallel-...

  • A Review of Dose Rate Dependent Effects of Total Ionizing Dose (TID) Irradiations

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):1016 - 1024
    Cited by:  Papers (10)

    The literature has been reviewed in order to arrive at firm conclusions regarding total dose test procedures. The most important results are that there is little evidence for true dose rate effects for rates less than 10 rad/min. Hence a Cobalt-60 simulation of space radiation effects is completely valid if the irradiation bursts are greater than a few minutes. Further, the effects of on-going ann... View full abstract»
