    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%...

    We have developed a new device using high-temperature superconducting sensors for the continuous detection and control of the level of cryogenic liquids with boiling temperatures of up to 90 K. The sensors contain material of La-(Ba,Sr)-Cu or Y-Ba-Cu oxides with superconducting transition...

    The application of a charge-coupled device sensor at the focal plane of a Schmidt telescope is described. The device installed on the 60/90/180 cm Schmidt telescope at Campo Imperatore Astrophysical Observatory has a field of view of 17×25 arcmin. A special LN2 cooling system was installed...

    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...

    A simple experimental method to determine the depletion width of a surface barrier detector is discussed. An electron spectrum of Bi207 taken with a detector having depletion width less than the range of the electrons shows an additional peak. The position of the extra peak enables us to...

    The overall performance of both a single- and a double-microchannel plate framing camera were measured. In the case of the double-plated device, only the front plate was gated. A short-pulse, 20-ps full width half-maximum (FWHM), uv laser was used to create photoelectrons on a time scale rapid...

  • An imaging plate system for high-pressure powder diffraction: The data processing side. Piltz, R. O.; McMahon, M. I.; Crain, J.; Hatton, P. D.; Nelmes, R. J.; Cernik, R. J.; Bushnell-Wye, G. // Review of Scientific Instruments;Jan1992, Vol. 63 Issue 1, p700 

    The use of an imaging plate as a two-dimensional (2-D) detector removes many of the difficulties that arise in performing angle-dispersive powder diffraction at high pressures in a diamond-anvil cell. Due to the 2-D nature of the imaging plate, a substantial part of each Debye Scherrer ring is...

    The spatial resolution of high-accuracy microchannel plate (MCP) detectors has reached the values, where the so-called detector walk (or image blurring) may start to limit any further improvements. Image blurring with gain is studied in detail for detectors incorporating angular-biased MCPs. It...
