  1. 1. Environmental history in southern Mozambique : Reconstruction of flooding events, hydroclimate and sea-level dynamics since mid-Holocene

    Författare :Sandra Raúl Sitoe; Jan Risberg; Elin Norström; Lars-Ove Westerberg; John Compton; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Southern Africa; Limpopo River floodplain; flooding event; sea-level change; climate change; diatoms; phytoliths; mineral magnetics; grain-size; radiocarbon dating; Quaternary Geology; kvartärgeologi;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis has been to reconstruct paleoenvironment, paleohydrology and paleoclimate in coastal southern Mozambique, with emphasis on tracing past flooding events on the lower Limpopo River floodplain. In order to extend flood chronologies beyond periods covered by instrumental data, sediments from lakes on the floodplain were studied (Lake Lungué, Coassane Oxbow, Lake Magandane and Lake Soane).

  2. 2. Compton Scattering from the Deuteron at Low Energies

    Författare :Magnus Lundin; Lunds universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Compton scattering; photonuclear reactions; deuteron; differential cross sections; 50-70 MeV; polarizability; tagged photons; Nuclear physics; Kärnfysik; Fysicumarkivet A:2002:Lundin;

    Sammanfattning : A series of three Compton scattering experiments on deuterium have been performed at the high-resolution tagged-photon facility MAX-lab located in Lund, Sweden. The 50 < Eg < 70 MeV tagged photons were scattered from a liquid deuterium target and detected simultaneously in three (10"x10") NaI detectors. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of six parts in which methods for image analysis and processing are studied. Two-dimensional medical images, image sequences, and three-dimensional image volumes are considered. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Characterization and Optimization of Silicon-strip Detectors for Mammography and Computed Tomography

    Författare :Han Chen; Mats Danielsson; cheng xu; Andrew Maidment; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; mammography; anti-scatter grid; photon-counting; spectral computed tomography; silicon strip; ASIC; energy resolution; Compton scatter; material decomposition; K-edge imaging; Medicinsk teknologi; Medical Technology;

    Sammanfattning : The goal in medical x-ray imaging is to obtain the image quality requiredfor a given detection task, while ensuring that the patient dose is kept as lowas reasonably achievable. The two most common strategies for dose reductionare: optimizing incident x-ray beams and utilizing energy informationof transmitted beams with new detector techniques (spectral imaging). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Relativistic effects in Compton scattering of photons from bound electron states

    Sammanfattning : What is light? A correct answer to this question is: I don't know, but I can see some of its properties"! It is exciting to study such a complex thing and to search for models which can help us to try to understand, in a proper way, some of the most interesting behavior of light. We see the sunshine and the radiation makes us warm, undoubtly it must be some kind of energy? Interference experiments with monochromatic light show that the radiation has wave-like properties, but for example scattering experiments predict a particle nature. LÄS MER
