Ion beam thermography - analysis of chemical compounds using ion beam techniques
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The analytical technique of ion beam thermography (IBT) is reported for the first time. IBT is a technique for the determination of chemical compounds. This IBT setup combines the multielemental ion beam technique's particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) and particle elastic scattering analysis (PESA) with thermography. A large number of elements are monitored with PIXE (Z > 14) and PESA (hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen). The thermographie treatment results in a thermogram for each element. The chemical compounds are inferred from these thermograms. This work describes the experimental setup. The capability of IBT is demonstrated on NH4C1, NH4NO3 and (NH4)2SO4.
