dc.description.abstractParametric information such as flux, intensity, mass and velocity, not amenable to measurements with the existing particle detection methods, can thus, in principle, be obtained utilizing this scheme in conjunction with time-of-flight beam modulation. Applications to plasma diagnostics, materials research and space related measurements are sufficiently interesting to merit further development of this methodology.
dc.description.abstractA technique for monitoring low energy neutral particleoeams has been investigated by the application of classical momentum transfer theory to an acoustic transducer.
dc.description.abstractThe experiment allowed for a spatially modulated sodium ion beam, mass and energy resolved, to be pulsed onto a condenser type transducer. Ions were used for convenience instead of a neutral beam since the charge state of the impacting particles has no effect on the detector output signal. This detector system consisted of a commercial electret-condenser microphone and a matched audio amplifier having a system sensitivity of +31.2 db re 1 V/N/m², A separate beam monitor enabled the determination of the ion flux and the calibration of the detected signal to the total momentum transfer occurring during a single pulse. Measurements taken for 12 kV, 14 kV, and 16 kV ions, and plotted according to the log of the total pulsed momentum vs the log of the detector output signal, demonstrated significant linear correlation and good agreement with the sensitivity curve of the transducer-amplifier.
