Electron Detection Systems for KATRIN Detector and Spectrometer Section
Martin, Eric Larue
MetadataShow full item record
A time-of-flight mode is proposed for the upcoming KATRIN experiment beta-decay spectrum measurement, and methods toward the necessary passive detection of a single electron through a large aperture are explored. A sub-fA current measurement was performed to determine the detector system's absolute detection efficiency, and faults in the silicon wafer were detected by an automated tester.
