  • Patent number: 9486646
    Abstract: A system for radiation therapy includes an ionizing radiation source for producing a beam oriented along an axis aligned with a target volume for delivering ionizing radiation to the target volume along a beam path and at a dose rate, wherein the beam includes a soft spectrum and a hard spectrum. The system also includes a filter arranged within the beam path and including a central aperture that is free of beam-filtering material, wherein the central aperture is surrounded by a beam-filtering material having a thickness dimension selected and positioned in the beam path to highly attenuate the soft spectrum of the beam to reduces external scatter of the beam and allow a majority of the hard spectrum of the beam to pass through the central aperture unfiltered. The beam path is free of beam-filtering material arranged to attenuate a central portion of the beam.

  • Patent number: 7265832
    Abstract: An optical system design for measuring the velocity of fluids flowing through pipes or other conduits is disclosed. The optical system is comprised of a means for delivering two beams through a window in the wall of the pipe, focused to two points aligned along an axis of the pipe and separated by a known distance, and means for detecting light that is scattered by particles carried in the fluid stream through a second window, that is disposed on the opposite side of the pipe. By measuring the time delay between detected signals, the velocity of the fluid can be determined. The delivered light beams are focused in a shallow cone of light and are blocked by an obstruction disposed behind the second window. The scattered light passes through an aperture behind the second window that surrounds the obscuration, and is focused on to a detector surface.
