MDM Spectrometer


MDM Spectrometer

Oxford DetectorThe MDM Spectrometer is a high-resolution, broad range spectrometer. The layout of the magnetic elements is in the order: entrance sextupole and multipole, gradient-field dipole, and exit multipole. The device has a “normal” focal plane, and the 1.6 m radius dipole magnet has a maximum mass-energy product of 315 MeV amu. At the maximum solid angle of 8 msr, the ratio of energies that can be accepted by the spectrometer (Emax/Emin) is 1.31.

Charged particles, having energies up to 100 A MeV, from nuclear reactions are measured with high resolution (1/4000) over a broad range energy range. The focal plane detector measures the ion’s x, θx, y, ΔE, E, and time of flight, enabling ray tracing and unit mass identification up to A=40.
