How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

In this study, the analysis of radon activity concentration in 11 types of rock samples has been carried out using a radon monitoring system which consists of long-tube technique equipped with CR-39 SSNTDs as a passive method and electronic RAD7 solid-state detector as an active method. The rock samples were collected from different mountainous are...

Project (1)
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN started physics operation in 2009 and is currently in its first intensive maintenance phase, the Long Shutdown 1 (LS1), where consolidation and upgrade work allows to operate at the design values for luminosity and energy of 1*1034 1/cm-2 s-1 and 14TeV during the next run period. The Long Shutdown 2 (LS2) period in 2018 and 2019 will then allow to increase the luminosity beyond the design value to about 2 - 3 * 10^34 1/cm-2s-1. Further upgrade phases after 2023 will finally increase the luminosity to ultimate values up to 7 * 10^34 1/cm-2 s-1. and considerably extending the physics program at LHC. In order to take advantage of the improved LHC operation the ATLAS detector, and in particular, the forward region of the Muon Spectrometer, must be upgraded to have better performance at the expected high luminosity. The innermost station of the high rapidity region(Small Wheel – SW )will be replaced by a new system(New Small Wheel – NSW). The NSW will have a diameter of about 10m and will be composed of 16 sectors, 8 large and 8 small sectors. Each sector will have modules of sTGC and MM detectors, arranged in the configuration sTGC-MM-MM-sTGC, with each module being a quadruplet of detector layers. An overall active area of about 1200 m2 will be provided by each one of the two technologies with chambers of unprecedented size up to 3 m2. Micromegas(MM) detectors have been chosen as the main tracking chambers and, at the same time, will also contribute to the trigger, which will be provided mainly by the small-strip Thin Gap Chambers(GC). The detector will be composed of eight active layers covering a total area of 1200 m2. It is subdivided into 128 modules each with four active layers (quadruplets) with strip-shaped readout electrodes. MicroMegas (MM) is an abbreviation for MICRO MEsh GASeous Structure,
