Abstract:Purpose: Ion-beam radiography exhibits a significantly lower spatial resolution (SR) compared to xray radiography. This is mostly due the multiple Coulomb scattering (MCS) that the ions undergo in the imaged object. In this work, a novel technique to improve the spatial resolution in helium-beam radiography was developed. Increasing helium-beam energies were exploited in order to decrease the MCS, and therefore increase the SR. Methods: The experimental investigation was carried out with a dedicated ion-tracki… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
