  • The induction of 90{degree} magnetic domains in a Nd{sub 2}Fe{sub 14}B hard magnet has been mapped at high spatial resolution using off-axis electron holography. Line profiles from the reconstructed phase image established an upper limit for domain wall width of 10 nm. Thermal annealing resulted in domain wall movement, magnetization rotation, and evidence for pinning at a structural defect. {copyright} {ital 1998 American Institute of Physics.}
  • Magnetic induction tomography is used as an experimental tool for mapping the passive electromagnetic properties of conductors, with the potential for imaging biological tissues. Our numerical approach to solving the inverse problem is to obtain a Fourier expansion of the resistivity and the stream functions of the magnetic fields and eddy current density. Thus, we are able to solve the inverse problem of determining the resistivity from the applied and measured magnetic fields for a two-dimensional conducting plane. When we add noise to the measured magnetic field, we find the fidelity of the measured to the true resistivity is quitemore » robust for increasing levels of noise and increasing distances of the applied and measured field coils from the conducting plane, when properly filtered. We conclude that Fourier methods provide a reliable alternative for solving the inverse problem.« less
  • Purpose: To investigate the feasibility of a simple and efficient transit dosimetry method using the electronic portal imaging device (EPID) for dose delivery error detection and prevention. Methods: In the proposed method, 2D reference transit images are generated for comparison with online images acquired during treatment. Reference transit images are generated by convolving through-air EPID measurements of each field with pixel-specific kernels selected from a library of pre-calculated Monte Carlo pencil kernels of varying radiological thickness. The kernel used for each pixel is selected based on the calculated radiological thickness of the patient along a line joining the pixel andmore » the virtual source. The accuracy of the technique was evaluated in flat homogeneous and heterogeneous plastic water phantoms, a heterogeneous cylindrical phantom, and an anthropomorphic head phantom. Gamma criteria of 3%/3 mm was used to quantify the accuracy of the technique for the various cases. Results: An average of 99.9% and 99.7% of the points in the comparison between the measured and predicted images passed a 3%/3mm gamma for the homogeneous and heterogeneous plastic water phantoms, respectively. 97.1% of the points passed for the analysis of the heterogeneous cylindrical phantom. For the anthropomorphic head phantom, an average of 97.8% of points passed the 3%/3mm gamma criteria for all field sizes. Failures were observed primarily in areas of drastic thickness or material changes and at the edges of the fields. Conclusion: The data suggest that the proposed transit dosimetry method is a feasible approach to in vivo dose monitoring. Future research efforts could include implementation for more complex fields and sensitivity testing of the method to setup errors and changes in anatomy.

  • The Minimal Multiscale Lagrangian Mapping procedure developed in the context of neutral fluid turbulence is a simple method for generating synthetic vector fields. Using a sequence of low-pass filtered fields, fluid particles are displaced at their rms speed for some scale-dependent time interval, and then interpolated back to a regular grid. Fields produced in this way are seen to possess certain properties of real turbulence. This paper extends the technique to plasmas by taking into account the coupling between the velocity and magnetic fields. We examine several possible applications to plasma systems. One use is as initial conditions for simulations,more » wherein these synthetic fields may efficiently produce a strongly intermittent cascade. The intermittency properties of the synthetic fields are also compared with those of the solar wind. Finally, studies of cosmic ray transport and modulation in the test particle approximation may benefit from improved realism in synthetic fields produced in this way.« less
  • The induction heating systems are often used in the steel making process. In an engineering point of view, it is important to investigate the distribution of the temperature in the systems. Here, a new approach to the induction heating system with traveling conducting plate is presented. The magnetic and thermal field are calculated by the finite element method. The velocity effect is treated by the cubic interpolated pseudo-particle method. The result demonstrates that the new approach is suitable for the problem.
