Improved designs of gas ionization detectors used for elastic recoil detection

Timmers, Heiko; Ophel, T; Elliman, Robert


It has been demonstrated that large-acceptance, parallel-plate gas-ionization detectors with position-sensitivity are well suited for heavy ion elastic recoil detection (ERD). The current designs of these detectors are based on experience from nuclear physics research. Using the facility at the Australian National University a new detector design, aimed to optimize the detector performance for heavy ion ERD, has been implemented and explored. In the new design the electric field in the entrance...[Show more]
