    • Applying CERN’s detector technology to health: MARS Biomedical 3D spectroscopic x-ray imaging 

      Butler, P.H.; Bell, A.J.; Butler, A.P.H.; Cook, N.J.; Reinisch, L.; Butzer, J.S.; Anderson, N.; MARS-CT Team (University of Canterbury. Electrical and Computer EngineeringUniversity of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2008)
      New Zealand has benefited considerably from our links with the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN). We have been an associate member of CERN for 8 years, with projects in high energy physics theory, in the high ...
    • Clinical applications of the Medipix detector 

      Sedayo, Anas (University of Canterbury. Physics and astronomy, 2012)
      In this thesis a recently developed energy resolving x-ray detector (Medipix) is used to investigate potential medical applications of spectral x-ray imaging. Computed Tomography (CT) is one of the most important medical ...
    • A multiwavelength investigation of blazar-type active galactic nuclei. 

      Bastin, Fane Troy (University of Canterbury. Department of Physics and Astronomy, 2013)
      A multiwavelength investigation is conducted for nineteen blazar-type active galactic nuclei. Studies of variability timescales and flux duty cycles are performed at x- and gamma-rays for each source, with the relationship ...
    • Small animal irradiation using the MARS Spectral CT 

      Kim, Daniel (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2013)
      This thesis reports on a novel use of the Medipix All Resolution System (MARS) Spectral CT scanner as a platform of small animal irradiation. Irradiation from the x-ray source in the scanner was used to inhibit the growth ...
    • Suitability of synthetic diamond films for x-ray dosimetry applications 

      Lansley, S.P.; Betzel, G.T.; Baluti, F.; Lydon, J.M.; Reinisch, L. (University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2008)
      Simple sandwich-type device structures have been fabricated by deposition of metal contacts on opposing faces of polycrystalline diamond films synthesised using chemical vapour deposition. The electrical characteristics ...
