Applications of a compact ionization chamber in AMS at energies below 1 MeV/amu

Forstner, O; Michlmayr, L.; Auer, M.; Golser, Robin; Kutschera, Walter; Priller, Alfred; Steier, Peter; Wallner, Anton


The increasing demand for measuring long-lived radionuclides with small AMS machines at energies below 1 MeV per nucleon raises the need for compact detectors which still have a decent energy resolution and allow for a clear identification of the incident particles. Based on a design by the AMS group at the ETH Zurich a compact gas ionization chamber was built and installed at the 3 MV tandem AMS facility VERA (Vienna Environmental Research Accelerator). The main challenge in AMS is the...[Show more]
