Electricdischarge guiding by a continuous spark by focusing CO{sub 2}laser radiation with a conic mirror
The feasibility of producing continuous laser sparks (CLSs) with a resistance per unit length of 100  400 {Omega} cm{sup 1} by focusing radiation from CO{sub 2} laser with a conic mirror is demonstrated. The laser energy input per unit length required for this is experimentally found to be equal to {approx}200 J m{sup 1}. The possibility to efficiently control the trajectory of an electric discharge by means of a CLS is demonstrated. A CLS is found to be an analogue of a highconductivity metal rod during the electric breakdown and electric potential transfer. The effect of polarity in themore » 
Modelbased calculations of offaxis ratio of conic beams for a dedicated 6 MV radiosurgery unit
Purpose: Because the smallradius photon beams shaped by cones in stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) lack lateral electronic equilibrium and a detector's finite cross section, direct experimental measurement of dosimetric data for these beams can be subject to large uncertainties. As the dose calculation accuracy of a treatment planning system largely depends on how well the dosimetric data are measured during the machine's commissioning, there is a critical need for an independent method to validate measured results. Therefore, the authors studied the modelbased calculation as an approach to validate measured offaxis ratios (OARs). Methods: The authors previously used a twocomponent analytical modelmore » 
SCATTERING AND ABSORPTION OF /cap beta/ BEAMS IN PLANE GEOMETRY. II. THEORETICAL MODELS BY SCHMIDT AND ODEBLAD (in German)
The theoretical model of Schmidt (neglect of the energy loss), which for the transmission T of the BETA particles at large layer thicknesses x yields theexponential law T ~ exp( mu x), where mu is the practical absorption coefficient, was discussed. The assumptions of the theory are not fulfilled for small x in isotropic angular distribution of the source electrons. For this case calculations were carried out by a decomposition of the BETA radiation into a diffusion part,'' for which the assumptions are approximately valid, and a side scattering part.''
