  6. An ASIC with a Low Power Multichannel ADC for Energy and Timing Measurements

    SBC: Pacific Microchip Corporation            Topic: 28a

    Densely packed gamma-ray imaging and spectroscopy instruments employ high performance multichannel electronics which occupy large volume and dissipate excessive heat. Therefore, a low power application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) incorporating multiple channels of digitizers and post processing electronics is of critical importance for nuclear physics (NP) instrumentation. Microchip Corp. p ...

  7. Very High Efficiency X-ray FEL Oscillator

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 07a

    X-ray Free Electron Laser in an Oscillator configuration (XFELO) offers significant advantages over single pass machines, including an enhanced spectral brightness and potentially improved output stability. However, a poor outcoupling efficiency of the X-ray optical resonators (< 4%), represents a significant practical limitation of the XFELO output in a low gain regime. In response to this proble ...

  8. Radiation Hardened Opto-atomic Magnetometer

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: 30f

    Precisely tuned electromagnetic fields are used to enable the operation and achieve needed beam characteristics in particle accelerators. Thus, accurate measurement of local magnetic fields is crucial. The major issue with current magnetic-field probes is their limited operation lifetime in high-radiation environments. Therefore, development of a radiation-hard magnetic field probe offering prolon ...
