  • HAXPES measurements in your own laboratory
    HAXPES measurements in your own laboratory Susanna Eriksson, Head of Product Management Electron Spectroscopy Recorded: Sep 13 2018 47 mins
    During the past decade, increased attention has been paid to hard X-rays in the photoelectron spectroscopy (HAXPES) field. This is mainly due to the greater information depth enabled by the higher photon energies. Such bulk-sensitive measurements could previously only be performed at dedicated synchrotron radiation facilities. However, the beam lines providing this type of radiation are heavily booked, so access to the experimental setups is limited. Higher excitation energies also enable bulk-sensitive measurements of deep core levels that are not accessible with standard XPS.

    We will present a new system featuring a monochromized X-ray source giving out Ga Ka radiation at 9.25 keV and a wide acceptance angle hemispherical electron analyzer, both combined on a simple-to-use vacuum system. With this system, a new set of potential
    experiments opens up in the home laboratory: investigations of buried interfaces, in operando devices, real world samples, etc. The overall system resolution is shown to be

    IOP ebooks - Meet the author Professor Brian Diffey Professor Brian Diffey Recorded: Aug 9 2018 45 mins
    Join us for this 45 minute webinar with the author of Sun Protection: A risk management approach, Professor Brian Diffey. Professor Diffey will give an overview of his book, key learning points and answer your questions in a live Q&A.

    About the book
    Sun Protection differentiates itself from other texts by adopting a risk-management approach to determine whether, how, and in what circumstances, harm might be caused, and to explore the feasibility of various strategies in controlling exposure to solar UV radiation. This multi-disciplinary book covers topics from climatology through human exposure to sunlight, as well as biological and clinical effects of UV radiation to physical and chemical strategies for photoprotection.

    This webinar is recommended viewing for biologists and dermatologists and will be of interest to physical scientists and those working in the skin care industry.
  • Applications of Cryogenics: Past, Present, Future
    Applications of Cryogenics: Past, Present, Future Jorge Pelegrín Mosquera – Research Fellow at University of Southampton Recorded: Jul 27 2018 52 mins
    Air was first liquefied in 1877. Since then, the cooling power has been harnessed for many applications that have impacted science and society.

    In this webinar a review of the applications that cryogenics has enabled will be presented. From gas liquefaction to the use of cryocoolers in applications such as MRI scans, particle detectors, accelerators or fusion technology.

    Looking to the future of cryogenics, quantum-computing promises vastly increased computational power via the use of novel materials. Superconducting and cryogenic technologies offer cleaner, more efficient transport and power networks.
  • MR Image Guidance & On-Table Adaptive Radiotherapy in Routine Clinical Practice
    MR Image Guidance & On-Table Adaptive Radiotherapy in Routine Clinical Practice Miguel A. Palacios, Medical Physicist at VU Medical Centre and Lauren Henke, Radiation Oncologist at Washington University Recorded: Jul 26 2018 60 mins
    Learn about the rationale and workflow for modifying radiation therapy treatments while the patient is on the table using Real-time On-table Adaptive Radiotherapy. Clinicians from hospitals in Amsterdam and St. Louis, MO will discuss their methodologies and clinical outcomes with the MRIdian® Linac system.

    MRI-Guided ROAR™ - Real-time On-table Adaptive Radiotherapy represents a new paradigm in the treatment of cancer, providing clinicians with the ability to improve targeting precision and thus deliver higher, and potentially more effective, radiation doses.

    • Learn how clinicians are adapting the radiation dose in real-time and watching every change/motion near the tumour with high contrast, soft-tissue imaging
    • Understand the clinical workflow of real-time, on-table adaptive radiotherapy
    • Hear examples of how MR Image-Guided Radiotherapy allows for personalized radiation therapy treatments and opportunistic dose escalation or de-escalation to avoid toxicity

    Cryogenic Safety Robert Done - Project design engineer - STFC - Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Recorded: Jul 23 2018 56 mins
    An introductory guide to the health and safety considerations required when using cryogenic equipment. The presentation will be based on the recently published fifth edition of the BCC cryogenic safety manual, will look at the legislation in place, and highlight some of the more significant hazards associated with cryogenics. The underlying theme will be a focus on reducing risks.

  • Life Beyond Earth
    Life Beyond Earth Dr Seth Shostak Senior Astronomer, Institute Fellow SETI Institute Dr. Colin Coates, Product Manager Research and OEM Recorded: May 10 2018 61 mins
    There has been, until now, no compelling evidence for biology beyond the confines of our own planet. And yet, people who investigate this topic feel confident that – within two decades – we will trip across life forms that are not, and never have been, earthlings. Why are they so optimistic that we will soon find some cosmic confrères, and what might be the implications of such a discovery?
  • Developing Novel Microfluidic Devices with Multiphysics Simulation
    Developing Novel Microfluidic Devices with Multiphysics Simulation Robyn Pritchard, Consultant Physicist The Technology Partnership (TTP) and Andrew Young, Technical Manager COMSOL Recorded: Apr 25 2018 55 mins
    If you are interested in using simulation to enhance the development of a microfluidic device, then tune into this webinar with Robyn Pritchard from The Technology Partnership (TTP).

    Cell sorting is a staple of many cell biology labs. The current gold standard, fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), is limited to processing roughly 10,000 cells per second to avoid irreparable damage. For many new advances in cell therapy (e.g., autologous T-cell therapy for cancer), throughput of up to a billion cells in a few hours is essential. TTP set out to break through the current limit by developing a novel microfluidic cell sorter.

    In this webinar, Robyn will discuss how TTP used the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to design and invent the world’s smallest ultrafast microfluidic cell sorter, where the key discovery was the inertial vortex. Robyn will also show how TTP's simulations correspond to reality with their fully working microfluidic chip.

    The webinar will include a live demonstration and conclude with a Q&A session.
  • Transforming Radiation Therapy With MR/RT: A Closer Look
    Transforming Radiation Therapy With MR/RT: A Closer Look Susan Lalondrelle and Uwe Oelfke, Institute of Cancer Research/Royal Marsden Hospital Recorded: Apr 12 2018 60 mins
    A new class of radiation devices is emerging that has the potential to transform how cancer is treated through more precise tumour targeting and the adaptation of treatment every time. High-field MR-linac technology integrates the power of state-of-the-art MR imaging with precision radiation technology. It can deliver precisely targeted radiation doses while simultaneously capturing the highest-quality MR images, which will allow clinicians to visualize both tumours and the surrounding healthy tissue at any time during radiation delivery, and adapt the treatment accordingly.

    During this webinar, clinical experts will share their experience with a novel high-field MR-linac. The speakers are currently utilizing this new technology and will present their latest work on the imaging studies that have been undertaken prior to clinical introduction. This work will support the new and rapidly emerging area of MR radiation therapy (MR/RT).

    High-field MR-linac devices based on diagnostic-standard MRI technology will offer many avenues for exploring improvements in radiotherapy, such as shorter treatment regimens or targeted adaptation of the treatment in real time. Also, by integrating precision radiation and MRI technologies, high-field MRI capabilities can be optimally explored to help bring personalized cancer care to radiation therapy.
