Status of AMS at iThemba LABS Gauteng

Review of Nuclear Sciences Cluster

10 May 2010

slide2
FN Tandem accelerator – fully refurbished with a once-off grant of R16M and ~R10M running costs (since 2005)
slide5

LLNL Multi cathode Source of Negative Ions by Cesium Sputtering for AMS

[Funded by grant from IAEA (R2.7M)]

slide6

iThemba LABS Negative Ion source by Cesium Sputtering base on the LLNL design for AMS

300 micro A Carbon 12

13/12/2009

slide7

Electrostatic Analyzer and Analyzer Magnet under construction in Faure

Will be coupled to MC-SNICS ion source in Faure for testing before shipping to Gauteng to be coupled to FN Tandem

  • Electrostatic Analyzer
  • Analyzer Magnet
slide8
With MC-SNICS ion source coupled to FN Tandem, beam injection and characterization can commence – before the end of 2010
sample preparation laboratory
Sample preparation laboratory :
  • AMS waste of time if sample is contaminated!
  • Hence, sample procurement at site is vital!
  • Sample preparation is vital!
  • Will utilize experience and expertise of Environmental Isotope Laboratory in sample preparation
slide18
Hence, AMS has wide range of applications and hence potential “customers”, both local, regional and international e.g.
  • Future of iThemba LABS (Gauteng) dependent on realization of AMS facility
