    The magnitude of the low energy component of the photon energy spectrum inside a J. L. Shepherd Model 81-22 Co-60 irradiator has been experimentally determined. Thermoluminescent dosimeters and a specialized ionization chamber were used to verify the usefulness of a lead (0.06") and aluminum (0.03") filter box to harden the Co-60 photon energy spectrum. The area of uniform dose as a function of di... View full abstract»

    Compton Tomographic Imaging, using external sources and gamma camera, has been demonstrated to be an effective tool for producing 3-D images of the density distribution of the chest. The design aspects of the TomoCompton and the algorithm applied for correcting the acquired tomograms for both geometrical and physical attenuation are described. In vitro and in vivo studies are reported. Finally, a ... View full abstract»

    The addition of a parallel field preamplification region has been shown to dramatically improve the performance of a standard multiwire proportional counter, permitting high overall gas gains to be achieved, a prerequisite for good spatial resolution, without in any way compromising energy resolution. The resulting device, known as a multistep detector, has been tested over a wide range of operati... View full abstract»

    The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) F7 satellite, launched in November, 1983, carries a dosimeter that measures radiation dose behind four hemispherical aluminum domes of different thicknesses and distinguishes low (electron) and high (proton) thresholds of energy deposition. The dosimeter also returns accurate, high-time-resolution dose measurements. Short-term measurements of dos... View full abstract»

    Planning and control of exposure to ionizing radiation require the use of accurate, reliable instrumentation to establish dose rates, indicate high exposure rate areas, and control the spread of contamination. The Radiological Controls Division of the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE) operates several programs under the technical direction of DOE's lead laboratory in health physics, the Pacific Nor...

  • Computer Aided Engineering Methods for Implementing the Fastbus Standard

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):690 - 691
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (399 KB)

    In this paper, we discuss the benefits of using Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) methods for implementing a bus standard (Fastbus, ANSI/IEEE Std 960). We describe the CAE methods, how standard design implementations and reference models complement CAE tools to form an integrated engineering environment, and we propose to use these methods for future standard developments.

    The "Virtual Fastbus Master" is a behavioral model of a general purpose Fastbus master module. In this paper, we describe the functions of the model, the behavioral modeling technique and the application of the model. Finally, we discuss some conclusions from this application of behavioral modeling. View full abstract»
