During my PhD I studied the decay pattern of the Pygmy Dipole Resonance (de) on the nucleus 140Ce. A new experimental setup (γ3) with high detection efficiency was installed at the High Intensity γ-ray Source (HIγS) at the Duke University.
My Master-Thesis is about pile-up correction in ultra high count rate applications using a Lanthanum Bromide (LaBr) scintillation detector.
In my Bachelor-Thesis I focused on Photon/Neutron Discrimination with applied methods of pattern recognition combined with Digital Data Acquisition and Analysis. I used an algorithm based on the Fuzzy C-Means clustering algorithm to distinguish between the signal shapes.
Mini Research Project
I've been working on a mini research project, which dealt with slow-control of Photo Multiplier High Voltage at the NEPTUN photon tagger facility. I implemented a client-server based control and monitoring software. The manual for the software can be downloaded here (not that it would make much sense to read it).
Advanced practical studies
These write-ups were done in the course of our advanced practical studies.
