Abstract
This paper describes the performance evaluation of new Delta E detectors to be used as pre-cell hit detectors in living cell irradiation experiments at the Lund Ion Beam Analysis facility (LIBAF). Using these detectors with a thickness down to 4.15 mu m fabricated at Lund University, an experiment was setup in which Delta E-detectors were used together with a stop E-detector in a telescope system under coincidence measurements. The characteristics of Delta E detectors were based on the optimal detection of the passage of 2.55 MeV protons. The results of these tests demonstrate that the detector telescope clearly separates the protons, this due to high signal-to-noise ratio and good energy resolution of the Delta E-detectors.

This paper describes the performance evaluation of new Delta E detectors to be used as pre-cell hit detectors in living cell irradiation experiments at the Lund Ion Beam Analysis facility (LIBAF). Using these detectors with a thickness down to 4.15 mu m fabricated at Lund University, an experiment was setup in which Delta E-detectors were used together with a stop E-detector in a telescope system under coincidence measurements. The characteristics of Delta E detectors were based on the optimal detection of the passage of 2.55 MeV protons. The results of these tests demonstrate that the detector telescope clearly separates the protons, this due to high signal-to-noise ratio and good energy resolution of the Delta E-detectors. The best performing detector was shown to have a detection efficiency of 95% at thickness of 9.7 mu m. This type of high-performing detector is suitable for the planned role of the Delta E-detector in the future cell irradiation experiments. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (Less)
