    We have developed and tested an inexpensive ion detector with dark-count rates below 10-4 s-1 and excellent background rejection. Each 40-keV ion that strikes a grazing-incidence Al2O3 conversion dynode ejects a few tens of secondary electrons, which enter separate pores of a microchannel plate...

    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%...
