The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf is a German research laboratory in Dresden and member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres. Research is conducted in three of the Helmholtz Association's research areas: matter, health, and energy. While the research center was formerly known as Forschungszentrum Dresden-Rossendorf , the research site dates back as far as 1956, when the Zentralinstitut für Kernforschung in Eastern Germany was founded.

Ion Beam Applications S.A. and Helmholtz Center Dresden | Date: 2014-09-19
The invention is related to a method for monitoring a range of a particle beam in a target. The method is using gamma detectors for detecting prompt gammas produced in the target. The time differences between the time of detecting a gamma quantum and a time of emission of a particle or a bunch of particles from the radiation device are determined. A statistical distribution of those time difference is used to deduce information related to the range of the beam. The invention is also related to an apparatus for monitoring a range based on measured time profiles of detected prompt gammas.

A process for producing a porous metal membrane (pore size 10 nm and 1 um), a metal membrane of this type, the use of the metal membrane and also corresponding filter modules. The Dice is 1-20 microns. The plasma immersion ion implantation process is utilized by bombarding a very thin metal foil with noble gas ions accelerated by means of a first accelerating voltage, in particular from both sides. The ion current is selected so that supersaturation occurs in the metal foil. Pores, in particular under the metal surface, are then formed by bubble segregation after supersaturation. Opening of the pores formed under the metal surface by ion implantation is effected by atomization of the surface by means of bombardment with noble gas ions using a second accelerating voltage which is lower than the first accelerating voltage.

The invention relates to a method and to a device for the electromagnetic stirring of electrically conductive fluids in the liquid state and/or in the state of onsetting solidification of the fluid, using a rotating magnetic field that is produced in the horizontal plane of a Lorentz force. The aim is to achieve an intensive three-dimensional flow on the inside of the fluid for mixing in the liquid state up to the direct vicinity of solidifying fronts, and to simultaneously ensure an undisturbed, free surface of the fluid. The solution is to change the direction of rotation of the magnetic field rotating in the horizontal plane at regular time intervals in the form of a period duration, wherein the frequency of the directional change of movement of the magnetic field vector is adjusted such that in the state of mixing the liquid fluid a period duration is adjusted between two directional changes of the magnetic field during a time interval as a function of the adjustment time with the condition (I) 0.5t

A grid sensor for measuring the phase distribution of a multiphase substance mixture with gaseous and liquid components in the presence of a highly conductive phase (such as salt water or liquid metal) employs 3 superposed electrode planes and an electronic measuring device. Application areas include determination of the liquid distribution and the fill level in containers, as well as the investigation of gas-liquid multiphase flows, in particular in pipelines, e.g. in petroleum production and processing.
