Excerpt from Neutron Standards and Applications: Proceedings of the International Specialists Symposium on Neutron Standards and Applications, Held at the National Bureau of Standards, Gaithersburg, MD, March 28-31, 1977 These are the proceedings of an International Specialists' Symposium on Neutron Standards and Applica tions held at the National Bureau of Standards, Gaithers burg, Md. From March 28 31, 1977. The field of neutron standards now spreads across a rather broad range of subjects including absolute neutron source strength, differential and integral standards for reaction cross sections, and standards for neutron dosimetry for nuclear reactor core and containment, personnel protection, cancer therapy, and fission reactor design. The purpose of the Symposium was to bring together workers from this spectrum of fields for the purpose of reviewing the present status, tying the different branches more closely together, and plan ning for a more coordinated international program in the future.

Release Date: 2009-04-21
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Neutron Imaging and Applications offers an introduction to the basics of neutron beam production in addition to the wide scope of techniques that enhance imaging application capabilities. An instructional overview of neutron sources, detectors, optics and spin-filters allows readers to delve more deeply into the discussions of radiography, tomography and prospective applications available in neutron holography techniques. A section devoted to current applications describes imaging single grains in polycrystalline materials, neutron imaging of geological materials and other materials science and engineering areas. Coverage of thermal neutron imaging of biological tissues, plant physiology, Homeland Security and contraband detection explore the future prospects of this cutting-edge research. Written by key experts in the field, researchers and engineers involved with imaging technologies will find Neutron Imaging and Applications a valuable reference.

Author: Martin Suda
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 3540260706
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Science

Deals with quantum-mechanical distribution functions and their applications in quantum optics and neutron interferometry. This book describes the phase-space representation of quantum optical phenomena, such as coherent and squeezed states. It also presents applications to interferometry, such as in beam splitters and fiber networks.

Radiation Dosimetry, Second Edition, VOLUME III: Sources, Fields, Measurements, and Applications covers the significant aspects of radiation dosimetry. The book discusses dosimetry relating to x rays and teleisotope gamma rays, discrete and distributed alpha-, beta-, and gamma-ray sources, electron beams, and heavy charged particle beams. The text also describes dosimetry relating to reactors, neutron and mixed n-gamma fields, neutrons from accelerators and radioactive sources, initial and residual ionizing radiation from nuclear weapons, natural and man-made background radiation, radiation in space, ultra-high energy radiation, and uncommon types of particles. Dosimetry relating to health physics, diobiology, radiotherapy, implant and intracavitary therapy, ""transition-zones"" (especially at bone-tissue interfaces), and radiation processing is also considered. Physicists, biophysicists, and people involved in radiological science will find the book invaluable.
