ASI Neutron Imaging Online Seminar

17th March 2021, 10:30 – 11:30 CET

Dr. Adrian Losko [LinkedIn] will share that recently developed event-driven detectors are capable of observing and time-stamping spots of light induced by particle interactions on scintillator materials. Reconstructing the Centre-of-Mass of the light emitted can provide a precise location of the interaction. This principle provides a pathway to overcome the blurring introduced by integration of the light emission that often limits the highest possible spatial resolution for imaging techniques using scintillators with standard shutter-based camera systems. Implementing the event-based image reconstruction, we present a new detector concept based on the TPX3CAM, a camera system capable of time-of-flight imaging of light emission with a flexible field-of-view, ad-hoc binning and re-binning of data based on the requirements of the experiment including the possibility of particle discrimination via the analysis of the event shape in space and time. Our most recent results using this system applied to thermal neutron imaging yield an increase by a factor 3 in spatial resolution and an increase by up to a factor of 7.5 in signal-to-noise compared to an integrated response of the light emission from scintillators. The potential applications of this concept are discussed, providing an outlook for the path forward in this development.

Highlights:
  • Event-mode imaging instead of frame-based imaging
  • Achieving excellent spatial resolutions via CoM
  • Particle discrimination via event shape analysis
  • Promising future applications

MD-GAS Event

MD-GAS WG1 & WG2 Conference 2021

15-19th March 2021

Learn about the newest high-performance instrumentation and experimental methods!

From 15th-19th March 2021, MD-GAS COST Action invites experts to share the latest developments of high-performance instrumentation, as well as the gas phase molecular dynamics induced by interactions between molecules/clusters and photons, electrons, or heavy particles, and their applications.

One of ASI’s very own application scientists, Dr. Jingming Long [LinkedIn], will give a detailed technical talk on “Ultrafast and powerful time-stamping camera for investigating molecular dynamics”. This informational session will benefit researchers interested in imaging electrons/ions more efficiently in the study of molecular dynamics.

Dr. Jingming Long’s Talk: Thursday, 18th March 2021

Registration deadline: 8th March 2021
