KVI PhD-student Ruud Vinke has won the second prize in the contest of the Dutch Physics Journal (Nederlands Tijdschrift voor Natuurkunde, NTvN). The participants in this contest are challenged to write a good and well-readable article about their PhD research in the field of physics. The prize, an amount of €750, will be given at the annual meeting of the Dutch Physical Society, Fysica 2011, on 15 April 2011 in Amsterdam. The article will be inserted in the April issue of NTvN. Ruud Vinke expects to get his PhD degree on 28 January 2011 at the University of Groningen.
The article of Ruud Vinke is about a new detector concept in PET scanners, which has been developed in a collaboration between TU Delft and KVI. The new technique will lead to a better contrast in the PET pictures and improved imaging towards the edges of the body being investigated. The technique should lead to an earlier diagnosis of cancer, which would increase the chances of a successful therapy.
