How does antimatter and matter solvate in liquids?

    Project Details


    Solvation, the process of a particle becoming trapped in a liquid, plays an important role in technological applications and the medical diagnostic, Positron Emission Tomography. However, there is a problem - these applications can only be described through particle transport simulation, which currently cannot address solvation. This project aims to solve this problem by modelling the dynamical solvation process of the electron, and its antimatter counterpart the positron. This will enable, for example, accurate simulation of medical diagnostics, which is essential for advancements in medical imaging and therapy to obtain the greatest amount of information for the smallest dosage of radiation.
