A high-gain inductive radio frequency spectrometer for use in magnetic resonance detection

Sensing, William J. 03 June 2011 (has links)
AbstractThis thesis includes an elementary introduction and background to nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) detection. The content is essentially concerned with the mathematical analysis of the spectrometer electronics. The construction and testing was routine using established high frequency techniques. The spectrometer circuitry incorporates both vacuum tube and solid state devices. The special characteristics of each device were utilized to best meet the particular circuit requirements.The electronic portion of this spectrometer functioned properly. Final testing of the total system is awaiting the completion of the induction probe presently under development.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306

Construction and use of a multidetector coincidence spectrometer for angular correlation measurements

Weeber, Winton L. 03 June 2011 (has links)
A multi-detector spectrometer was constructed to measure garmia-gamma angular correlations in 154Gd from the decay of 154Eu. Gamma-ray multipole mixing ratios were extracted from the data. A modified fast-slow coincidence electronics arrangement with selective routing of data was used. One Ge(Li) detector and three NaI detectors were used in the system for rapid data acquisition. "Real-plus-random" and "random" coincidences were accumulated simultaneously with detectors set at selected angles. Mixing ratios for the first transition in the cascades of 1274-123--keV (2--2+-0+), 1005-123-keV (3+-2+-0+), and 723-996-keV (2--2+-O+) were measured as '5(1274) = 0.02 0.02, '5(1005) = -28+10' '5(723) = 0.02 0.02.'The measured correlation for the 592-1005 keV cascade (2--3+-2+) was analyzed by searching a 157 by 157 array of values for '5(592) and 8(1005); agreement was tested using a Q2 criterion. The best agreement for the mixing ratio of the 592-keV transition was 8(592) = 0.08 0:22; for the 1005-keV transition 8(1005) = -9.5+7. The value 8(1005) _ -9.5+7 is taken to be the better value as a result of experimental considerations. The value for the 592-keV transition had not been previously measured.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306

Circuits and systems for CW and pulsed high-field electron spin resonance

Bolton, David Robert January 2006 (has links)
This thesis is concerned with the design and realisation of components for a new state of the art 94GHz Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) spectrometer capable of operating in both pulsed and CW modes. The complete spectrometer is designed to provide phase coherent 1kW peak power sub-nanosecond π/2 pulses having variable duration and repetition rate. The mm-wave response of a paramagnetic sample to these pulses is detected with a superheterodyne detector. Such a system would offer a step change in performance, promising unprecedented resolution and sensitivity. These aims should be compared with the performance of commercial (Bruker) instruments capable of delivering 200mW 30ns π/2 pulses. For this type of system, both the long term (thermal) and short term (phase) stability of oscillators and sources employed are extremely important. Consideration of phase noise, frequency, tunability and power output shows that multiplied sources offer substantial benefits compared to fundamental sources. A delay line discriminator method of phase noise measurement, suitable for use with the low frequency oscillators is described and implemented. This is extended to 94GHz using a down convertor with a quasi-optically stabilised Gunn oscillator. These tools are used to select an optimum oscillator-multiplier combination to produce a low noise 94GHz source. Anew method of pulse generation, which has produced +23dBm peak power 250ps rectangular and 115ps Gaussian envelope phase coherent pulses, is described. These are believed to be the shortest phase coherent pulses at 94GHz available. This system will be used to provide ns pulses suitable for amplification to 1kW using a Klystron amplifier. A heterodyne detector has been constructed which employs the same oscillator/multiplier techniques identified above to produce the required local oscillator signal. It is demonstrated that by careful consideration of multiplication factors a system employing one variable and one fixed oscillator allows all the signals required in the spectrometer to maintain phase coherence. It is demonstrated that the complete demodulator responds to pulses on a ns time scale and has a noise temperature of 737K.

(e,2e) spectroscopic investigations of the spectral momentum densities of thin carbon films

Dennison, John Robert January 1985 (has links)
An (e,2e) electron scattering spectrometer has been constructed and used for the first time to investigate the spectral momentum density of the valence bands of a solid target. This technique provides fundamental information about the electronic structure of both crystalline and amorphous solids. The three fundamental quantities, the band structure, electron density of states, and electron momentum distribution can be simultaneously derived from the measured (e,2e) cross section. A review of single electron and (e,2e) scattering theory is given with an emphasis on scattering from solids. The effects of multiple scattering are discussed and a method of deconvoluting those effects from the measured (e,2e) cross section is developed. There is a detailed description of the spectrometer design and operation with particular attention given to the electron optics and voltage distribution. The algorithms and software for computer aided data acquisition and analysis are also outlined, as is error analysis. The techniques employed in the preparation and characterization of extremely thin film samples of a-C and single crystal graphite are described. An analysis of the data taken for a-C samples is given. The data are compared with the results of complementary experiments and theory for graphite, diamond, and a-C which are given in a review of the literature. The existence of a definite dispersion relation ε(q) in amorphous carbon is demonstrated. The a-C band structure appears to be more similar to that of graphite than to that of diamond, however it differs significantly from both in some respects. The measured spectral momentum density seems compatible with a model of a-C based on small, randomly-oriented islands of quasi-2D graphite-like continuous random network structures. However, no definitive interpretations can be made until higher resolution experiments are performed on both a-C and single crystal graphite. / Ph. D.
