Attention will be given here only to the density measurements, which are performed by introducing a metallic rod into the soil, having a gamma ray source (in most cases [sup.137]Cs) on the tip, as shown in Fig.
For reasons of space must be x-rayed with a gamma ray source, isotope SELENIUM 75 (SE75).
We knew it would also be one of the more challenging to design because of proximity to the MRI magnet, and volume constraints due to the gantry configuration." The system uses three gamma ray sources, mounted in separate shielded heads.
Terrestrial gamma ray flashes were accidentally discovered in the 1990s, when space telescopes designed to study cosmic gamma ray sources began detecting unexpected gamma rays coming from the direction of Earth.
These scientists hope that the observatory's expected discovery of several hundred new medium-energy gamma ray sources may identify areas of the sky likely to emit higher-energy photons -- gamma rays whose presence can be inferred only from Earth.
It provides an overview of fifteen years of research that has successfully characterized the most abundant types of gamma ray sources, such as pulsar wind nebulae and supernova remnants, and made detailed measurements of individual sources as well as of entire regions of the Milky Way.
If the new equipment is built, the astronomers involved expect to detect tens of additional representatives of the three classes of TeV gamma ray sources they already know about: radio pulsars, X-ray binary pulsars and active galaxies.
