Stefan Sellner finishes diploma thesis
Stefan handed in his diploma thesis on 'Real-Time Imaging of the Annihilation Vertex Distributions for Antiprotons Stopping in Biological Targets'. As the name suggests, he investigated into a technique that measures the secondary particles created at the irradiation with antiprotons with a rather simple detector set-up, and uses the direction of flight information to reconstruct the annihilation vertex distribution in the irradiated tissue. Stefan verified the applicability of this technique in this thesis and compared experimental results to simulations he carried out.
This work is part of the QUASAR Group’s activities in antiproton cancer therapy as part of the ACE collaboration and made possible through the support of the EU, HGF, GSI, NSF and DFG.
