Beam Profile

1.5 inch FWHM beam profile measured at 8 mA peak current. The units on the beam scan is in inches. so the grid is 2inch by 2 inch (5cm by 5cm). Frequency is 60 Hz.

Beam on


Turned beam on zero degree port and NaI lights up whan positioned just after the beam pipe window.

Must be gammas Rate = 10 count/sec. Anode amplified (x64) then discriminated and put into a scaler. Threshold on discriminator is 2 Volts and results in zero counts when beam off. NaI PMT at 1500 volts.
