Vacuum Detector

The Vacuum Imaging Detector (VID) is an open face detector without a photocathode. It is designed to be mounted into or onto a vacuum chamber. The VID is designed to detect charged particles, UV photons and neutrons. It is available with either a phosphor screen, solid anode or resistive sea which provides re-configurable anode options. The phosphor screen can also include a time of flight module which provides timing response to 5 ns. Typical applications include electron microscopy, nuclear physics research and VUV imaging.

Features

  • Custom CAD designed
  • High resolution
  • Optional MCP gating to 8 ns
  • 18, 25, 40 and 75 mm active diameter
  • Choice of flange size
  • Phosphor screen or electrical output
  • Optional TOF module with phosphor screen. 5 ns FWHM
  • Resistive Sea with re-configurable anode options

Applications

  • Electron microscopy
  • Field ion microscopy
  • Mass spectrometry
  • Measurement of chemical bond strength
  • Molecular disassociation
  • Nuclear physics
  • Space telescopes
  • Synchrotron Radiation
  • VUV imaging
