The study of Cultural Heritage materials requires advanced techniques to shed new lights on ancient technologies and help in their preservation. The implementation of new analytical tools, including large or medium scale facilities such as synchrotron radiation, charge particle accelerators, neutron sources, etc. permits a deep insight on the archaeological and artistic materials, from the...

A new energy-resolving X-ray camera capable of time-, energy-, and space-resolved measurements has been developed. This new device is built around a high-speed pnCCD detector. A poly-capillary optics can be attached in front of a beryllium entrance window to conduct X-ray photons from the probe to distinct pixels onto the detector. For the detection of light elements, a thinner Be-window can...

The feasibility of using PILATUS single-X-ray-photon counting detectors for long-wavelength macromolecular crystallography was investigated by carrying out a series of experiments at the Diamond Light Source. Results on detection threshold equalization at low-energy (with 2.3 to 3.7 keV X-rays) obtained with a PILATUS operated in helium environment were presented in reference . To...

The basic rationale for radiation therapy using ion beams is its high local precision of dose deposition. Due to the steep gradients in dose distribution precise knowledge of the patient's position and potential tumor displacement becomes even more important than in conventional therapy using photon beams. Therefore accurate patient positioning prior and during beam application is a crucial...
