The paper is titled “Muography and Its Potential Applications to Mining and Rock Engineering” and was recently published in Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering. You can read and download […]

27 April 2020 – Mapping of raw material deposits by cosmic-ray induced muons

Cosmic-ray borehole muography is a novel imaging method that detects density variations in soils and underlying rocks. The method can be compared to X-ray imaging as the physical principles of both methods are similar. However, whereas X-ray imaging works only with small objects due to relatively low energies of X-rays, muons can have enormous energies and […]
