Compton Scattering Of Gamma-Rays From Electrons In Advanced Laboratory, Christine A. Byrd, Morgan T. Burks, Lawrence A. Yates, Wilfred J. Braithwaite

Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science

A kinematically-complete 2-body final state measurement of Compton scattering of 662-keV photons is presened, where both scattered photon energy and electron recoil energy are measured versus photon scattering angle, theta gamma. Passive collimation of the photon beam is avoided; each recoiling electron triggers a photon-scattering event providing active beam collimation. Recoiling electrons have low energies at small theta gamma, impairing electron detection efficiency. Examining the recoiling-electron energy spectra in coincidence with high-resolution gammas indicates a 1"x 1"NaI detector is superior to a 1"x1" NE-102 plastic scintillator as the active scattering material, for efficient recoil-electron detection. Electron efficiencies ...

Small scale Monte Carlo programming is growing rapidly due to the ease with which complex problems may be formulated by any programmer. These programmers may choose to exploit graphics and interactive displays available in the program library developed and maintained by CERN (the Center for European Nuclear Research). This paper outlines the use of graphics and interactive data display features of the CERN program library, developed for visualizing simulated data events in particle detectors. One example uses GEANT, CERN's Monte Carlo modeling program, to simulate 300 MeV/c protons incident on a silicon slab. Display packages for GEANT are ...


Computational Fluid Dynamics In Small Airway Models Of The Human Lung, G. Burnside, J. R. Hammersley, Rama N. Reddy, B. Catlin Jan 1994

Computational Fluid Dynamics In Small Airway Models Of The Human Lung, G. Burnside, J. R. Hammersley, Rama N. Reddy, B. Catlin

Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science

The promise of gene replacement therapy for cystic fibrosis, the administration of drugs via inhalation therapy, and die deposition location of man-made airborne particulates all involve a more complete understanding of the fluid dynamics in the human lung. Flow in the larger airways may be measured through life-sized models directly, but the airways in the peripheral lung are too small and the flows are too complex to be studied in this manner. Computational models can be developed which will accurately represent both the geometric nature of the central airways and the fluid dynamics with in them. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional models ...
