3. Scintillation properties of CsI(Tl) co-doped with Tm2+

Sajjad Shahmaleki; Faezeh Rahmani

Volume 2, Issue 2 , Spring 2021, Pages 13-19

  In this research, the Tm content as codopant in CsI(Tl) was optimized for reducing the afterglow. As an experimental reference, CsI(Tl) and CsI(Tl-0.05%Eu) single crystals were grown by Bridgman method. The grown crystals were characterized through photoluminescence analysis, and the measurements of ...  Read More

4. Effect of ionic radius on Ti (IV), Zr (IV), and Hf (IV) adsorption by RB biomass

Saeed Kakaei; Elham Sattarzadeh Khameneh; Akbar Monji Boveiri

Volume 2, Issue 2 , Spring 2021, Pages 21-28

  For the first time, sorption characteristics and mechanisms of group-4 elements were investigated and compared in extremely acidic solutions (4 M HCl) by rice bran (RB) biomass. Numerous instrumental strategies and hard-soft acid-base (HSAB) theory were applied to investigate the sorption features and ...  Read More

5. Efficiency of the layered BSA model for BNCT of deep tumors based on photoneutron sources

S. Farhad Masoudi; Fatemeh Sadat Rasouli

Volume 2, Issue 2 , Spring 2021, Pages 29-35
