Probing depths of low energy electrons in metals
Spin-polarized electron energy-loss spectroscopy has been used to investigate the probing depth of low energy ($\sim$30 eV) electrons in metals. A beam of spin-polarized electrons is directed at the surface of the sample ...
Design and construction of a large area multi-wire proportional chamber
The concepts involved in the design and operation of a multi-wire proportional chamber are reviewed. The design and construction of two chambers for the SMC (Spin Muon Collaboration) muon polarimeter are described in some ...
Spin polarized metastable deexcitation spectroscopy as a probe of gases absorbed on metal surface
Spin polarized metastable deexcitation spectroscopy provides an important surface probe, in which a beam of thermal energy metastable noble gas atoms is deexcited at the target surface under study, releasing its energy ...
A laser diode system and its use in a laser cooling experiment
A system to control and stabilize the output of visible laser diodes was developed and used to measure the velocity distribution of lithium atoms in a laser cooling experiment. Circuitry was designed and built for controlling ...
