    VISAR (velocity interferometer system for any reflector) systems are used to measure the Doppler shift of a backscattered laser beam incident on a target, from whence the target's velocity can be calculated. In the past, slow lenses (F/4 or slower) have been used to collect the scattered light....

    A VISAR (velocity interferometer system for any reflector) with a new type delay leg is described, which uses multireflection in the étalon for increasing the delay time τ. When the incident angle is changed, the sensitivity of the VISAR can be changed. A few step values of the...

    A method based upon laser interferometry is developed to measure the transient film-thickness profiles in the postwithdrawal drainage of viscoelastic suspensions. The interference patterns, produced by a Mach-Zender interferometric arrangement, were recorded and subsequently analyzed using a...

    A micromechanical sensor for charged-particle flux detection utilizing the extreme force sensitivity of microcantilevers is demonstrated with alpha particles. The latter create a charge buildup on an electrically isolated collection plate, a metallic sphere. The cantilever detector measures the...

    The β spectrum of Tl obtained using a 200-μm detector is distorted with a prominent peak centered around 97 keV. The features of this spectrum can be reproduced by a Monte Carlo procedure. The minimum ionizing nature of the electrons with energy higher than about 300 keV is responsible for...

    The conventional methods of determining the analyzing power of a Mott detector for electron-polarization measurement are not very accurate. That is why alternative methods have recently been discussed. The present paper shows how a Mott detector can be calibrated with an uncertainty of ±1%...

    The design and operation of a neutral-hydrogen flux detection system is described. The central feature of the detector is an inductively driven electron cyclotron resonance heated (ECRH) discharge, which functions as the neutral-flux ionizer. The prominent features of the ionizer are its small...
