GiPS Beamtime 28.-31. Jan 2010
We measured neutron irradiated Fe-Cr sample. The samples were activated mainly by 60Co to a level of 50 MBq (1.35 mCi).

2010-01-29_01 We built a lead castle for the handling of the activated Fe-Cr samples. 2010-01-29_02 A thick lead glass block allows safe preparation. 2010-01-29_03 Without activated sample still low dose level. 2010-01-29_04 A small Ge detector replaces one of the 100% efficiency Ge detectors to be less sensitive for high energy gammas. 2010-01-29_05 Mike and Marco putting the Ge detector into position. 2010-01-29_06 Workspace in Lab 111d with Netbook and additional large screen. 2010-01-29_07 Laser adjustment for the upcoming beamline of the MePS system in Lab 111d. 2010-01-29_08 New bended tube already mounted for vacuum test with He leak testing system. 2010-01-29_09 Coil for longitudinal magnetic field has two layers of thick Cu wires. It produces about 75 Gauss. 2010-01-29_10 The green wires form two pairs of steering coils. They are kept in place with cable clips. The two layers of Cu wires are fixed by complete epoxy painting. 2010-01-29_11 Wolfgang Anwand prepairs himself for sample treatment of the activated Fe-Cr alloys. 2010-01-29_12 The hot sample produces about 2 mSv/h in 5 cm distance. One has to be fast. 2010-01-29_13 View through lead glass block... 2010-01-29_14 Sample wrapped in Hostaphan foil already between two Nylon fibres. 2010-01-29_15 Holder in position in the middle of the 6 detectors (4 Ge- and 2 BaF2 detectors). 2010-01-29_17 Single channel rates are extremely high already due to the 60Co activation of the samples. The gamma ray of the GiPS setup raises the rates only slightly. 2010-01-29_18 Maik Butterling is going to control the measurements from the room next to Cave 109. 2010-01-29_19 Control panel of Cave 109 of the ELBE WinCC-System. The beam current of the 20 MEV electron beam is 747 µA.
