The pulse timing structure of the positron storage ring at the Advanced Photon Source has been measured. A simple and straightforward detector system was employed to capture and record the x-ray pulses while the storage ring operated in its standard mode of 6+25 triplets. In this mode the most dense x-ray pulse structure was clearly resolved with respect to the inter-pulse spacing and pulse position. The pulse profiles are presented clearly detailing the time structure of the storage ring. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We describe a pulsed positron beam that is optimised for positronium (Ps) laser-spectroscopy experiments. The system is based on a two-stage Surko-type buffer gas trap that produces 4 ns wide pulses containing up to 5 x 105 positrons at a rate of 0.5-10 Hz. By implanting positrons from the trap...

    In many modern storage rings, position monitors process beam signals at frequencies above cutoff for propagating modes in the beam duct. This is common in beam ducts with antechambers. Propagating modes introduce fields at the position monitor pickups unrelated to beam position at the monitor,...

    A narrow energy beam of slow positrons can be generated by moderating the beta-decay spectrum of a radioactive β[sup +] source. We report here the development and use of the first moderator in which the low-energy positrons are not extracted from the surface facing the β[sup +] emitter but...

    Variable-energy positron-beam studies have been carried out on Si with a 1.61 μm overlayer of SiO2 irradiated by x ray and γ ray up to the dose of 5×105 R. The Doppler broadening of annihilation photons was found to be strongly influenced by x-ray irradiation, and the effect was...
