10Be at iThemba LABS using a silicon nitride membrane stack as absorber for isobar suppression

Nuclear Inst. and Methods in Physics Research, B have published an article by Winkler et Al about asome ccelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) research at the iThemba Laboratory for Accelerator Based Science (iThemba LABS), where they “implemented full suppression of the interfering isobar 10B using a silicon nitride foil-stack, utilizing the 2+ charge state for high efficiency”.

Silson’s silicon nitride membranes of size 8 x 8 mm and thickness 100 nm, were used as an absorber stack for AMS.
