Our in-air station is located at the end of our dedicated beam-line. The station consist of a rotating platform and a removable target mounting fixture. most users to our facility prefer the in-air station over the vacuum chamber due to its easy access for set-up and target changes.
Target Positioning System
Range of motion is listed below:
X-Axis: +6-3/4" / -7-1/8"
about the beam-line center
Target position verification is provided by the means of a CCD camera aligned with the beam path. a narrow laser beam attached to an electronic scale is used to determine the air gap distance between exit window and target. The aramica exit window has a 1"-Diameter opening. Our software allows you to account for air gaps and exit window thickness for range and LET calculations.The size and shape of the beam aperture may be altered using various collimators, with a 1" diameter opening being the largest available.
Tables giving beam energy, range and let at various distances from the foil can be found here.
The distrance from a typical table top in the data room to the top of the in-air platter is approximately 15-Feet. A bnc patch panel is also provided. Typical cable lengths from the patch panel to the target frame are approximately 3 to 5 feet. also provided, and permanently installed, are five ribbon cables, two DB9 serial cables, three DB25 serial cables, and two GPIB cables. These cables are approximately 25 feet in length.
Also available if needed is a KVM extender. This unit
is useful when your equipment needs to be near your test set-up, but
your mouse, keyboard and monitor need to be in the data-room. Our KVM
extender is made by Black Box (model
