    Abstract : Ionizing radiation is often used within medicine for diagnosis and treatments. Because ionizingradiation can be harmful to the body, it is important to know how it affects the tissue. Dosimetryis the study of how ionizing radiation deposits energy in a material. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resolution Improvements and Physical Modelling of a Straw Tracker : The NA62 Experiment at CERN

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Richard Skogeby; [2017]
    Keywords : Detector physics; gaseous detectors; gas-filled detectors; proportional counter; particle physics; high-energy physics; detector; detectors; straw; CERN; NA62; straw tracker;

    Abstract : Lab measurements and Monte Carlo simulations have been carried out for the evaluation of the Straw-type detectors used in the NA62 experiment at CERN. In addition, analyses of experiment data was used in corrections to improve the reconstruction of particle tracks, ultimately leading to improved resolution of the detector system as a whole. 97.
