The article describes the history and motivation for the development and application of the single hit technique at GSI, and it describes some basic elements and their influence on its performance.
We report the upgrade of the epifluorescence microscope of the GSI heavy-ion microprobe with a galvo-scanned, 488 nm laser diode. The laser is focussed into the object plane by the water-immersion… (More)
This article describes results of a continuing effort in development of a ‘‘second generation’’ biological single ion hit facility (SIHF) at GSI, Darmstadt, Germany. It describes the rationale,… (More)
Abstract Using the GSI heavy ion microprobe and a special hardware circuit for upset and latchup detection we have for the first time simultaneously imaged upset- and latchup-sensitive regions of a… (More)
For a single ion hit facility built to irradiate specific targets inside biological cells, it is necessary to prove that the ions hit the selected targets reliably because the ion hits usually cannot… (More)
The present work intends to provide an improvement of external dielectric strength of Vacuum Interrupter (VI), in open air without additional polymeric encapsulation. The ceramic envelope of the… (More)
For a single ion hit facility built to irradiate specific targets inside biological cells, it is necessary to prove that the ions hit the selected targets reliably as the ion hits usually cannot be… (More)
Abstract For more than 20 years, so-called single-hole membranes have been produced at GSI for medical purposes. They are produced by letting just one single ion hit a plastic membrane through a 100… (More)

Abstract After an introduction to the cosmic ray environment, we show why few-MeV heavy ions are suitable to simulate cosmic radiation effects in integrated circuits, and how the sensitive sites for… (More)
