Ion Beam Analysis

Rutherford Backscattering (RBS), Nuclear Reaction Analysis (NRA), and Particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) are techniques available to us based on a National Electrostatics Pelletron in tandem configuration.  The maximum voltage is 1.7 MV, which translates to a maximum energy of 5.1 MeV for helium.  This facility is jointly operated with the Materials Sciences Division.  For more details, please consult the dedicated webpage.
