L-X-ray production cross-sections for PXAMS: Target and energy dependence for 50-200 MeV hafnium ions

Winkler, Stephan; Fifield, L Keith; Tims, Stephen; Fernandez Niello, J O


In order to detect the long-lived radioisotope 182Hf (t1/2 = 8.9 Ma), a potential supernova isotope signature, we investigated PXAMS as a method of isobar separation for Hf and W. One of the problems of the method is low efficiency. Since there are no reliable quantitative predictions on cross-sections leading to the emission of X-rays from collisions involving fast Hf ions, we determined the energy dependent cross-sections for a number of target elements. A PXAMS system of maximum efficiency...[Show more]
