  1. 1. Test and Calibration of CUBES: a CubeSat X-ray Detector

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Caroline Holmberg; [2022]
    Keywords : Applied Physics; Astroparticle Physics; Tillämpad fysik; Astropartikelfysik;

    Abstract : CUBES is an X-ray detector that will be placed aboard the KTH 3U CubeSat mission, MIST. Its purpose is to detect high energy X-rays as well as to test various components in a space environment. Two CUBES will be placed on the satellite. Each CUBES consists of a printed circuit board (PCB) with three multi pixel photon counters (MPPCs). READ MORE

    Abstract :      One of the major challenges in earth sciences and mineral exploration has been to determine with high accuracy and at a fast rate the elemental composition as well as the general chemistry of a rock sample. Many analytical techniques e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Determining the alignment of Solar Orbiter instruments STIX and EUI during solar flares

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutet för rymdfysik, Uppsalaavdelningen

    Author : Sofia Tynelius; [2022]
    Keywords : Solar flares; the Sun; STIX; EUI; alignment; pointing;

    Abstract : Solar Orbiter is a mission launched in 2020 that will take images closer than ever of the Sun. It has ten instruments on board, including The Spectrometer/Telescope for Imaging X-rays (STIX) and The Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI). READ MORE

  4. 4. X-Ray Fluorescence of Metal Halide Perovskites

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Samuel Narciso Silva; [2022]
    Keywords : Perovskite; X-ray; Fluorescence; Python; PyMCA; Synchrotron radiation; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : This thesis has the aim to provide a framework for analyzing X-ray fluorescence (XRF) data obtained from German Electron-Synchrotron Group (DESY). The theoretical analysis shows that XRF competes with Auger emission, and works mainly for elements with high atomic number. Here, incident X-rays of 13. READ MORE

  5. 5. Time-resolved x-ray diffraction study of longitudinal optical phonons in zincblende semiconductors

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Atomfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Lassi Linnala; [2022]
    Keywords : femtosecond THz radiation; ultrafast x-ray diffraction; pump-probe; longitudinal optical phonons; zincblende semiconductors; anharmonic decay; density functional perturbation theory; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Anharmonic decay of longitudinal optical (LO) phonons in zincblende semiconductors is not at present well characterized due to the polar and many-body nature of the problem. Femtosecond THz radiation offers a novel route to this study, as the interaction of this radiation is directly with the phonon lattice and these THz excited phonons do not have enough energy to excite electrons over the band gap.
