Volume 3, Issue 2 , May 2022, , Pages 11-15

  In this experimental work, Polycarbonate/Bismuth Oxide (PC-Bi2O3) nanocomposites were prepared in various concentrations of 0, 10, 30, and 50 wt% with thicknesses of 1 mm and irradiated by a pure beta-emitter source of Sr-90. To fabricate the electrodes, copper sheets with thickness of 100 µm were ...  Read More

Volume 1, Issue 3 , August 2020, , Pages 11-16

  ‎Collision of protons with background gas and beamline wall in proton therapy causes the creation of secondary particles‎, ‎e.g. neutrons‎, ‎which results in more difficulties in curing the tumors‎. ‎In the present simulation-based study‎, ‎the optimum diameter of ...  Read More
