  1. 1. The microdosimetric variance-covariance method used for beam quality characterization in radiation protection and radiation therapy

    Author : Jan Erik Lillhök; Lennart Lindborg; Bernd Grosswendt; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ionizing radiation; radiation quality; radiation protection; radiation therapy; microdosimetry; nanodosimetry; variance-covariance method; Radiological physics; Radiofysik; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : Radiation quality is described by the RBE (relative biological effectiveness) that varies with the ionizing ability of the radiation. Microdosimetric quantities describe distributions of energy imparted to small volumes and can be related to RBE. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cosmic rays and shock physics in gamma-ray bursts

    Author : Filip Samuelsson; Felix Ryde; Robert Mochkovitch; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; astrophysics; gamma-ray bursts; cosmic rays; radiation-mediated shocks; Atomic; Subatomic and Astrophysics; Atomär fysik; subatomär fysik och astrofysik;

    Abstract : Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the most luminous events in the known universe. Due to their tremendous energy output, they serve as laboratories of physics far beyond anything that we can hope to achieve in terrestrial experiments. READ MORE

  4. 4. A New Measurement of Low Energy Antiprotons In the Cosmic Radiation

    Author : Petter Hofverberg; Mark Pearce; Stephane Coutu; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cosmic radiation; antiprotons; solar modulation; Astroparticle physics; Astropartikelfysik;

    Abstract : New measurements of the antiproton flux and the antiproton-to-proton flux ratio at the top of the atmosphere between 80 MeV and 2.0 GeV are presented. The measurement was conducted from July 2006 to March 2008 with the PAMELA satellite experiment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Simulations of Cosmic Reionization : Shapes & Sizes of H II regions around Galaxies and Quasars

    Author : Martina M. Friedrich; Garrelt Mellema; Jonathan Pritchard; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astronomy; astronomi;

    Abstract : After the era of recombination, roughly 360 000 years after the big bang (redshift 1100), the universe was neutral, continued to expand and eventually the first gravitationally collapsed structures capable of forming stars, formed. Observations show that approximately 1 billion years later (redshift 6), the Universe had become highly ionized. READ MORE
