Characterization of solid hydrogen targets

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In experiments using the TRIUMF solid hydrogen target systems, knowledge of target thickness and uniformity is often essential in order to extract physical parameters from the data. We have characterized the thickness and uniformity of frozen targets using the energy loss of alpha particles. An accuracy of about 5% was achieved, a limit imposed by the uncertainty in the stopping powers. Details of the method are described and the thickness calibration of the target is presented.
