  1. 1. Characterizing the X-ray Properties of Clusters of Galaxies

    Author : Karl Andersson; Ariel Goobar; Andrew Fabian; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : Clusters of galaxies are the most massive bound structures known and represent a fair sample of the baryonic and dark matter content of the universe. The hot baryonic gas present in cluster dark matter halos cause them to emit in the X-ray band. READ MORE

  2. 2. Open-Framework Germanates : Synthesis, Structure, and Characterization

    Author : Andrew Kentaro Inge; Xiaodong Zou; Anthony Cheetham; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Open-framework; zeolites; germanates; porous materials; crystallography; hydrothermal synthesis; crystal structure; strukturkemi; Structural Chemistry;

    Abstract : Novel open-framework germanates and open low-dimensional structures were synthesized and characterized. Their crystal structures were solved by single crystal X-ray diffraction or X-ray powder diffraction combined with other techniques. READ MORE

  3. 3. Prussian blue analogue copper hexacyanoferrate : Synthesis, structure characterization and its applications as battery electrode and CO2 adsorbent

    Abstract : Prussian blue (PB) and Prussian blue analogues (PBAs) are compounds with potential applications in a large variety of fields such as gas storage, poison antidotes, electrochromism, electrochemistry and molecular magnets. The compounds are easy to synthesize, cheap, environmentally friendly and have been pursued for both fundamental research and industrial purposes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Characterization and Optimization of Silicon-strip Detectors for Mammography and Computed Tomography

    Author : Han Chen; Mats Danielsson; cheng xu; Andrew Maidment; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; mammography; anti-scatter grid; photon-counting; spectral computed tomography; silicon strip; ASIC; energy resolution; Compton scatter; material decomposition; K-edge imaging; Medicinsk teknologi; Medical Technology;

    Abstract : The goal in medical x-ray imaging is to obtain the image quality requiredfor a given detection task, while ensuring that the patient dose is kept as lowas reasonably achievable. The two most common strategies for dose reductionare: optimizing incident x-ray beams and utilizing energy informationof transmitted beams with new detector techniques (spectral imaging). READ MORE
