    The ability to achieve resolution that is better than the instrument resolution (i.e., superresolution) is well known in optics, where it has been extensively studied. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of theoretical studies concerning superresolution of particle spectrometers, even though...

    A Monte Carlo study to determine the shielding features to neutrons of water-extended polyester was carried out. During calculations, 252Cf and shielding were modelled and the neutron spectra as well as the H*(10) were calculated in four sites. The calculation was extended to include a water...

    A NE230 deuterated liquid scintillator detector (25 mm diameter × 25 mm) has been used to investigate neutron energy spectra as a function of position in a water phantom under irradiation by a quasi-monoenergetic 64 MeV neutron beam. Neutron energy spectra are obtained from measurements of...

    Bonner sphere spectrometers (BSS) are being used widely in neutron spectrometry since 1960. The response to neutrons of these moderating detectors spans over a broad energy range. This work discusses the measurement of the sensitivity of an extended range BSS hosting a CR39 nuclear track...

    All too often we rely on Monte Carlo simulations without worrying too much about basic physics. It is possible to start with a very simple calorimeter (a big cylinder) and learn the functional form of π/e by an induction argument. Monte Carlo simulations provide sanity checks and constants....

    The mechanism for the muon catalyzed fusion reaction t + t → He + 2 n + 11.33 MeV is investigated. The model of the cascade reaction with He as an intermediate state is considered, both the ground and the first exited states being taken into account. The neutron energy spectrum measured...

    Modeling the chemical erosion of carbon materials due to low-energy H+ impact is of paramount importance for the prediction of the behavior of carbon-based plasma-facing components in nuclear fusion devices. In this paper a simple general model describing both energy and temperature dependence...
