We have developed an ultrathin 100 nm , very strong polyimide foil which can span more than 6 6 cm2 and is ideal for the fabrication of low energy proton detectors. We have produced a proton detector geometry in which protons incident on the foil with kinetic energies greater than about 25 keV produce, on average, more than ten secondary electrons in a conversion crystal evaporated on the back face of the foil. These secondary electrons can be “postaccelerated” and counted in a variety of… CONTINUE READING
