The previous chapter was concerned with laser and particle beams insofar as they are used to produce HED plasmas, whereas this chapter is concerned with the physics of the beam-plasma interaction itself.

Characterisation and mapping of scattered radiation fields in interventional radiology theatres
Metrics details. Linac output as a function of field sizes has a phantom and a head scatter component. This last term can be measured in-air with appropriate build-up ensuring a complete electron equilibrium and the absence of the contaminant electrons. Equilibrium conditions could be achieved using a build-up cap or a mini-phantom. Monte Carlo simulations in a virtual phantom mimicking a mini-phantom were analysed with the aim of better understanding the setup conditions for measuring the collimator scatter factor that is the head scatter component of the linac output factors. The phase-space files for a Varian TrueBeam linac, provided by the linac vendor, were used for the linac head simulation.
Scattering and Diffraction
Artifacts are commonly encountered in clinical CT and may obscure or simulate pathology. There are many different types of CT artifacts, including noise, beam hardening, scatter, pseudoenhancement, motion, cone-beam, helical, ring and metal artifacts. We review the cause and appearance of each type of artifact, correct some popular misconceptions and describe modern techniques for artifact reduction. Noise can be reduced using iterative reconstruction or by combining data from multiple scans. This enables lower radiation dose and higher resolution scans.
Compton scattering , discovered by Arthur Holly Compton , is the scattering of a photon by a charged particle, usually an electron. If it results in a decrease in energy increase in wavelength of the photon which may be an X-ray or gamma ray photon , it is called the Compton effect. Part of the energy of the photon is transferred to the recoiling electron. Inverse Compton scattering occurs when a charged particle transfers part of its energy to a photon.

Theoretical predictions for elastic neutrino-electron scattering have no hadronic or nuclear uncertainties at leading order making this process an important tool for normalizing neutrino flux. However, the process is subject to large radiative corrections that differ according to experimental conditions. We perform calculations within the Fermi effective theory and provide analytic expressions for the electron energy spectrum and for the total electromagnetic energy spectrum as well as for double- and triple-differential cross sections with respect to electron energy, electron angle, photon energy, and photon angle.

Recently, there has been much research in the field of nanostructure technology. The objective of this article is to explore the basic physics, technology, and applications of ultra-small structures and devices with dimensions in the subnm range. Nanostructure devices are now being fabricated in many laboratories to explore various effects, such as those created by downscaling existing devices, quantum effects in mesoscopic devices, tunneling effects in single electron transistors, and so on.
Controlling spin electromagnetic waves by ultra-thin Pancharatnam-Berry PB metasurfaces show promising prospects in the optical and wireless communications. One of the major challenge is to precisely control over the complex wavefronts and spatial power intensity characteristics without relying on massive algorithm optimizations, which requires independent amplitude and phase tuning. However, traditional PB phase can only provide phase control.

This chapter and the next summarize the case for development and use of high-intensity lasers for research and applications. The impact of high-intensity laser technology on science is unusually strong and broad, spanning from the most basic questions of the cosmos to potential applications in medical therapy. The primary motivation for high-intensity science is that it overturns the foundational assumption that the forces exerted by light are weak, and may therefore be treated as small perturbations to the forces that shape matter.
