Abstract

In the case of loss of the source of the radioactive source, the distribution of radiation field needs to be mastered, which is an important basis for radioactive sources search strategy and the evacuation of the radiation area. In this paper, the inversion of the particle field is put forward by a function constructed for solid radioactive sources. Dose of any point is inversely proportional to the distance from the nuclear radioactive source. The dose of surface near the radioactive source is sharp, steep and concave. The dose surface may be convex where the nuclear radiation field is restored with sparse data by interpolation or fitting. Hence, we made use of mathematical construction techniques to construct dose function tactfully. An inversion model is established which is based on the dose of nodes in the grid. The dose of the grid lines is restored by the cubic spline interpolation. According to an idea of dose dominance of adjacent point, the function of interior point of grid is structured, which is consistent with the characteristics of the radiation field. During the simulation experiment, the dose of node is obtained by MCNP code based on the Monte Carlo method. It is verified that the dose function is close to the real dose field. Therefore, inversion method is feasible, which provides theoretical basis for radioactive sources search and safe evacuation.

Keywords: Dose field of nuclear radiation, inversion, construct, dose dominance of adjacent point.

"Open access journals are a novel concept in the medical literature. They offer accessible information to a wide variety of individuals, including physicians, medical students, clinical investigators, and the general public. They are an outstanding source of medical and scientific information."


Jeffrey M. Weinberg
(St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, USA)

"Open access journals are extremely useful for graduate students, investigators and all other interested persons to read important scientific articles and subscribe scientific journals. Indeed, the research articles span a wide range of area and of high quality. This is specially a must for researchers belonging to institutions with limited library facility and funding to subscribe scientific journals."


Debomoy K. Lahiri
(Indiana University School of Medicine, USA)

"Open access journals represent a major break-through in publishing. They provide easy access to the latest research on a wide variety of issues. Relevant and timely articles are made available in a fraction of the time taken by more conventional publishers. Articles are of uniformly high quality and written by the world's leading authorities."


Robert Looney
(Naval Postgraduate School, USA)

"Open access journals have transformed the way scientific data is published and disseminated: particularly, whilst ensuring a high quality standard and transparency in the editorial process, they have increased the access to the scientific literature by those researchers that have limited library support or that are working on small budgets."


Richard Reithinger
(Westat, USA)

"Not only do open access journals greatly improve the access to high quality information for scientists in the developing world, it also provides extra exposure for our papers."

"In principle, all scientific journals should have open access, as should be science itself. Open access journals are very helpful for students, researchers and the general public including people from institutions which do not have library or cannot afford to subscribe scientific journals. The articles are high standard and cover a wide area."

"Open access journals have become a fundamental tool for students, researchers, patients and the general public. Many people from institutions which do not have library or cannot afford to subscribe scientific journals benefit of them on a daily basis. The articles are among the best and cover most scientific areas."

"Open access journals are probably one of the most important contributions to promote and diffuse science worldwide."


Jaime Sampaio
(University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Portugal)

"Open access journals make up a new and rather revolutionary way to scientific publication. This option opens several quite interesting possibilities to disseminate openly and freely new knowledge and even to facilitate interpersonal communication among scientists."


Eduardo A. Castro
(INIFTA, Argentina)

"Open access journals are freely available online throughout the world, for you to read, download, copy, distribute, and use. The articles published in the open access journals are high quality and cover a wide range of fields."


Kenji Hashimoto
(Chiba University, Japan)

"Open Access journals offer an innovative and efficient way of publication for academics and professionals in a wide range of disciplines. The papers published are of high quality after rigorous peer review and they are Indexed in: major international databases. I read Open Access journals to keep abreast of the recent development in my field of study."
