PIRSA:11070076  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Scattering Kernel for Aperture Modulated Total Body Irradiation
Speaker(s): Di Wan
Abstract: The goal of Total Body Irradiation (TBI) is to deliver a uniform dose of radiation to the entire body, to destroy cancerous cells. Since the human body is not uniform in either density or thickness, it is difficult to deliver a uniform dose. A novel, Aperture Modulated, Total Body Irradiation (AMTBI... read more

PIRSA:11070077  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Measurement of the Pion Branching Ratio at TRIUMF : A Sensitive Probe in the Search for New Physics
Speaker(s): Chloe Malbrunot
Abstract: Study of rare decays is an important approach for exploring physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). The branching ratio of the helicity suppressed p ? e? decay, is one of the most accurately calculated decay process involving hadrons and has so far provided the most stringent test of the hypothesis ... read more

PIRSA:11070078  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Measurement of the Radiopurity of Acrylic for the DEAP-3600 Dark Matter Experiment
Speaker(s): Corina Nantais
Abstract: The DEAP-3600 single-phase liquid argon detector at SNOLAB will increase the sensitivity to spin-independent WIMP-nucleon scatters by two orders of magnitude, allowing for the possibility of dark matter particle detection. The spherical detector will contain 3600 kg of liquid argon in an 85 cm radiu... read more

PIRSA:11070079  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Using Antimatter to Aid in the Design of Safer more Efficient Nuclear Power Plants
Speaker(s): Marisa Smith
Abstract: We are doing research on the chemical reaction of the hydrogen atom with water under sub- and supercritical conditions. Supercritical water is water above the critical point (373.9 C and 220.6 bar). This reaction is one of the most important reactions in the next generation of nuclear reactors calle... read more

PIRSA:11070080  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Spectroscopic Study of Atmospheric Trace Gases
Speaker(s): Hoimonti Rozario
Abstract: Molecular spectroscopy offers the tools and instrumentation needed to unveil the structure and characteristics of molecules that are found within planetary atmospheres. In order to do this we examine the frequencies of light that these molecules either absorb or emit. It is the fine structure of the... read more

PIRSA:11070081  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
QCD Confinement at Finite Chemical Potential and the Gravity Dual
Speaker(s): Fang Chen
Abstract: TBA
Date: 21/07/2011 - 1:20 pm

PIRSA:11070082  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Crystallinity, Magnetic and Electrical Properties of Doped Perovskite-Oxid
Speaker(s): Sepiedeh Pirasteh
Abstract: Sepiedeh Pirasteh
Date: 21/07/2011 - 1:40 pm

PIRSA:11070083  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Exploring the Viscoelastic Properties of PAA Phantoms
Speaker(s): Corey Rae McRae
Abstract: A gel that has similar thermodynamic properties to human tissue is necessary for determining the safety of implanted medical devices during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). One particular gel recommended by the ASTM standard (F218209) is the polyacrylic acid (PAA) phantom. In this work, PAA mixture... read more

PIRSA:11070084  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Physics Education Research: Helping Students Become Better Scientists
Speaker(s): Natasha Holmes
Abstract: Physics Education Research (PER) is a blossoming subfield of physics that is changing the way students become physicists. Our research involves the transformation of the lab portion of a first-year enriched physics course through the implementation of “invention activities:” discovery-learning a... read more

PIRSA:11070086  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Progress and Challenges for Canadian Female Physicists
Abstract: In recent years there has been an increase in the number of women in all academic levels in physical and applied sciences in Canada. Despite the modern feminist movement the number of women in physics continues to be less than the number of men, particularly in higher and leadership positions. As th... read more
