Auburn University Accelerator

Auburn University 2 MV Pelletron Accelerator


Auburn University  2 Million Volt Dual Source Tandem Accelerator

Proton Irradiation: H+ 100 keV-4 MeV                            

Ion Implantation: Almost any ion except Noble gases 100keV-12 MeV dependent on final charge

Typical elements: N, Al and P

Beam current is dependent on "most probable stripping cross section for a given terminal (dome) voltage".

Rutherford Backscattering Spectroscopy: Elemental composition of thin films and substrates

Ion Beam Channeling: Surface structure and material crystallinity analysis
