Carbon buildup and PHD effect under ion bombardment

We report on a study of the carbon buildup phenomenon and the charge collection inefficiencies that occur when a carbon target is bombarded with a beam of carbon ions. A Ge(HP) detector is used to measure the γ-rays emitted by the evaporation residues after the fusion reaction of the 12C+12C system. A PIN diode and a Silicon surface barrier detector are… CONTINUE READING
