  • Developing a sorting code for Coulomb excitation data analysis 

    Mehl, Craig (University of the Western Cape, 2015)
    This thesis aims at developing a sorting code for Coulomb excitation studies at iThemba LABS. In Coulomb excitation reactions, the inelastic scattering of the projectile transfers energy to the partner nucleus (and ...
  • Simulation of silicon and diamond detector systems by GEANT4 simulation techniques 

    Erasmus, Nicholas Rattray (University of the Western Cape, 2014)
    There is a constant need for improvement in nuclear particle detection methods. Silicon surface barrier detectors have proved very valuable during the last decades. Diamond is a viable alternative to silicon as a semiconductor ...
