General Purpose Scattering Chamber

General Purpose Scattering Chamber
A beamline for the general purpose scattering chamber is under construction. It is expected to be in service by the summer of 2002. The chamber is cylindrical and made of stainless steel with a diameter of 100 cm and a depth of 30 cm. It can be used to accommodate large arrays of charged particle detectors. A beam diagnostics station with a multichannel plate detector will be installed at the entrance of the chamber to monitor the beam and provide timing information. The target ladder is located at the center of the chamber. However, targets can be placed anywhere along the beam axis to increase the flight path for time-of-flight measurements. Flanges on the side around the chamber and on the bottom of the chamber can be used for connecting detectors to instruments out of the chamber. Lemo and SHV feedthroughs will be provided for signal and power connections. Custom made flanges with header connectors for Si strip detectors have been designed. A flange for supplying gas to ionization counters and providing coolant to cool Si detectors will be implanted.

The schematics of the beamline and scattering chamber is shown here.
