# So CT scanners look pretty badass when they're not covered in casing

"Supposedly this is a picture of a CT scanner sans casing," writes io9-reader Monica, "but it looks more to me like a first-generation Stargate." We heartily agree – and just wait until you see what this beastly contraption looks like in motion.

## The Effects of Radiation Damage on CLYC Performance

Cs2LiYCl6:Ce3+ (CLYC) is a new scintillator that is an attractive option for applications requiring the ability to detect both gamma rays and neutrons within a single volume. It is therefore of interest in applications that require low size, weight, or power, such as space applications. The radiation environment in space can over time damage the crystal structure of CLYC, leading to reduced performance. We have exposed 2 CLYC samples to 800 MeV protons at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center, one to approximately 10 kRad and one to approximately 100 kRad. We measured the pulse shapes and amplitudes, energy resolution, and figure of merit for pulse-shape discrimination before and after irradiation. We have also measured the activation products and monitored for room-temperature annealing of the irradiated samples. The results of these measurements and the impact of radiation damage on CLYC performance is presented.

## Perturbed angular distributions with LaBr3 detectors: The g factor of the first 10+ state in 110Cd reexamined

The time differential perturbed angular distribution technique with ${\mathrm{LaBr}}_{3}$ detectors has been applied to the ${I}^{\ensuremath{\pi}}={\frac{11}{2}}^{\ensuremath{-}}$ isomeric state (${E}_{x}=846$ keV, $\ensuremath{\tau}=107$ ns) in $^{107}\mathrm{Cd}$, which was populated and recoil-implanted into a gadolinium host following the $^{98}\mathrm{Mo}$($^{12}\mathrm{C}$, $3n$)$^{107}\mathrm{Cd}$ reaction. The static hyperfine field strength of Cd recoil implanted into gadolinium was thus measured, together with the fraction of nuclei implanted into field-free sites, under similar conditions as pertained for a previous implantation perturbed angular distribution $g$-factor measurement on the ${I}^{\ensuremath{\pi}}={10}^{+}$ state in $^{110}\mathrm{Cd}$. The $^{110}\mathrm{Cd}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}g({10}^{+})$ value was thereby reevaluated, bringing it into agreement with the value expected for a seniority-two $\ensuremath{\nu}{h}_{11/2}$ configuration.

## 75 Years Ago, Scientists Conducted An Unprecedented Nuclear Experiment

On Dec. 2, 1942, a group of scientists in Chicago created the first controlled, self-sustained nuclear chain reaction, which would prove essential to developing an atomic bomb a few years later.

## CAT-ACT—A new highly versatile x-ray spectroscopy beamline for catalysis and radionuclide science at the KIT synchrotron light facility ANKA

CAT-ACT—the hard X-ray beamline for CATalysis and ACTinide/radionuclide research at the KIT synchrotron radiation facility ANKA—is dedicated to X-ray spectroscopy, including “flux hungry” photon-in/photon-out and correlative techniques and combines state-of-the-art optics with a unique infrastructure for radionuclide and catalysis research. Measurements can be performed at photon energies varying between 3.4 keV and 55 keV, thus encompassing the actinide M- and L-edge or potassium K-edge up to the K-edges of the lanthanide series such as cerium. Well-established X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy in transmission and fluorescence detection modes is available in combination with high energy-resolution X-ray emission spectroscopy or X-ray diffraction techniques. The modular beamline design with two alternately operated in-line experimental stations enables sufficient flexibility to adapt sample environments and detection systems to many scientific challenges. The ACT experimental station focuse
