Scientific Reports is a reputable online peer-reviewed scientific mega journal, published by Nature Portfolio, that covers all areas of the natural sciences, psychology, medicine and engineering.

In their research article, titled, “Fieldable Muon Spectrometer Using Multi-Layer Pressurized Gas Cherenkov Radiators and Its Applications,” Bae and Chatzidakis propose a different paradigm for muon momentum measurement that utilizes multi-layer pressurized gas Cherenkov radiators.

They anticipate that the proposed spectrometer will benefit several potential engineering applications where compactness and portability are of paramount importance such as cosmic ray muon tomography, geological studies and cosmic radiation measurement in space.

Bae believes that this development publicly acknowledges their vital research. He said, “It motivates me to advance my research in nuclear material management using cosmic ray muons.”
