Lansing, NY, May 16, 2011 -- ADC USA, Inc. announced today that it is introducing a series of ion chambers designed for precise, low noise x-ray measurement with three different electrode lengths for use as general purpose intensity monitors for Synchrotron application. One unique feature of this series is the ability to use it as
The IC-400 & IC-500 series ion chambers are designed for precise, low noise x-ray measurement. The device allows users to determine the change in beam position in a single axis by comparing two signals that are created as the beam passes through the Ion Chamber. By connecting two Ion Chambers together at 90° you can determine the horizontal and vertical beam position. The system can be configured for air, vacuum, or ultrahigh vacuum operation through one of three interfaces.
One unique feature of the IC-400 & IC-500 series precision ion chambers is the incorporation of a split collector plate. The electrode is split in a saw tooth configuration with a height of approximately 10mm, 15mm, and 25mm such that, when the differential current is computed, allows use as a beam position monitor. Custom configuration of the window and electrode sizes is available upon request.
During the product development phase ADC tested these ion chambers with collaboration from several synchrotron facilities that include Brookhaven National Lab and Advanced Photon Source with excellent results.
