11. Improving quantitative neutron radiography through image restoration
Published: 7/20/2013
Authors: Daniel S Hussey, Elias M Baltic, Kevin J Coakley, David L Jacobson
Abstract: This in-situ study examines the water content in polymer electrolyte fuel cells (PEFCs) using neutron radiography. Various conditions such as different polytetraflouroethylene (PTFE) loadings in the gas diffusion media including the micro-porous laye ...

12. Scintillation Yield and Time Dependence from Electronic and Nuclear Recoils in Liquid Neon
Published: 8/13/2012
Authors: Kevin J Coakley, W. H. Lippincott, D. Gastler, E. Kearns, D. N. McKinsey, J. A. Nikkel
Abstract: We have performed measurements of scintillation light in liquid neon, observing a signal yield in our detector as high as (3.5 +/- 0.04) photoelectrons/keV. We measure pulse shape discrimination between electronic and nuclear recoils in liquid neon ...

13. A gamma and X-ray dector for cryogenic, high magnetic field applications
Published: 7/13/2012
Authors: Thomas R Gentile, R L Cooper, R. Alarcon, M J Bales, E J Beise, H Breuer, J. Byrne, T E. Chupp, Kevin J Coakley, Maynard S Dewey, Changbo Fu, Hans P Mumm, Jeffrey S Nico, Brian O'Neill, K. Pulliam, Alan K Thompson, F E. Wietfeldt
Abstract: As part of an experiment to measure the spectrum of photons emitted in beta-decay of the free neu- tron, we developed and operated a detector consisting of 12 bismuth germanate (BGO) crystals coupled to avalanche photodiodes (APDs). The detector wa ...

14. Fast Neutron Detection with Li-6-loaded Liquid Scintillator
Published: 4/12/2011
Authors: David McLarty Gilliam, B Fisher, J N Abdurashitov, Kevin J Coakley, V N Gavrin, Jeffrey S Nico, A A Shikhin, Alan K Thompson, Dominic F. (Dominic F.) Vecchia, V E Yants
Abstract: We report on the development of a fast neutron detector using a liquid scintillator doped with enriched 6Li. The lithium was introduced in the form of an aqueous LiCl micro-emulsion with a di-isopropylnaphthalene based liquid scintillator. A 6Li conc ...

15. Recent Progress in Noise Thermometry at 505 K and 693 K Using Quantized Voltage Noise Ratio Spectra
Published: 9/6/2010
Authors: Weston Leo Tew, Paul David Dresselhaus, Kevin J Coakley, H Rogalla, D. R White, J Labenski
Abstract: We report on technical advances and new results in noise thermometry at temperatures near the tin freezing point and the zinc freezing point using a Quantized Voltage Noise Source (QVNS). The temperatures are derived in a series of separate measureme ...

16. Erratum: Scintillation time dependence and pulse shape discrimination in liquid argon
Published: 3/2/2010
Authors: W. H. Lippincott, Kevin J Coakley, D. Gastler, A. Hime, E. Kearns, D. N. McKinsey, J. A. Nikkel, L.C. Stonehill
Abstract: We have found an error in the code used to perform the multibin method analysis of Sec. III C in which events were compared to a template trace calculated from the wrong photoelectron bin (the index l in Eqs. (14) and (15) did not match the observed ...

17. Scintillation time dependence and pulse shape discrimination in liquid argon
Published: 3/2/2010
Authors: W. H. Lippincott, Kevin J Coakley, D. Gastler, A. Hime, E. Kearns, D. N. McKinsey, J. A. Nikkel, L. C. Stonehill
Abstract: Using a single-phase liquid argon detector with a signal yield of 4.85 photoelectrons per keV of electronic-equivalent recoil energy (keVee), we measure the scintillation time dependence of both electronic and nuclear recoils in liquid argon down to ...

18. Frequentist coverage properties of uncertainty intervals for weak Poisson signals in the presence of background
Published: 2/3/2010
Authors: Kevin J Coakley, Jolene D Splett, David S Simons
Abstract: We construct uncertainty intervals for weak Poisson signals in the presence of background. We consider the case where a primary experiment yields a realization of the signal plus background, and a second experiment yields a realization of the bac ...

19. Systematic error in the precision measurement of the mean wavelength of a nearly monochromatic neutron beam due to geometric errors
Published: 12/3/2009
Authors: Kevin J Coakley, Maynard S Dewey, Andrew T Yue, Alexander Laptev
Abstract: Many experiments at neutron scattering facilities require nearly monochromatic neutron beams. In such experiments, one must accurately measure the mean wavelength of the beam. We seek to reduce the systematic uncertainty of this measurement to approx ...

20. An experiment for the precision measurement of the radiative decay mode of the neutron
Published: 10/5/2009
Authors: R Cooper, Christopher D. Bass, E Beise, H Breuer, J Byrne, T E. Chupp, Kevin J Coakley, Maynard S Dewey, B Fisher, Changbo Fu, Thomas R Gentile, M. McGonagle, Hans P Mumm, Jeffrey S Nico, Alan K Thompson, F E. Wietfeldt
Abstract: The neutron typically beta decays into a proton, electron, and antineutrino. In some decays, it can be accompanied by a high energy photon. We recently performed the rst observation of the radiative beta decay branch for the free neutron with phot ...
