The Lund Nuclear Microprobe sub-micron set-up. Part III: Sample stage, optical imaging and detector configuration in the experimental chamber

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A new sub-micron beamline for high-resolution nuclear microprobe applications has been constructed at the Lund nuclear microprobe facility. The design and construction of the main experimental chamber.. sample viewing system and computer controlled precision sample stage movement is presented in this paper. The chamber is especially designed for using a large area annular HPGe detector. The advantages with such a large area detector are discussed and illustrated. In addition the quality of the optical viewing and the precision sample stage is discussed.
