  • Abstract We present the performance of a novel device conceived for measuring minute energy deposits in a low-density gas, capable of operating in various radiation fields, including in an accelerator environment. The ion-counting nanodosimeter provides a precise measurement of the ionization distribution deposited within a small wall-less gas volume, modeling nanometer-scales of condensed matter, e.g. the DNA molecule. We describe the instrument and its data acquisition system. The results of… CONTINUE READING
