Development of gamma-ray induced positron age-momentum correlation measurements at UVSOR-III

Age-Momentum Correlation (AMOC) can observe the Doppler broadening of time-resolved annihilation gamma rays. The annihilation rate depends on the positron state, and it is possible to know if positrons are trapped in structural defects in a sample. Moreover, the Doppler broadening gives the information of impurities around the defects. Positrons from radioactive isotopes cannot penetrate a deep region of bulk material. The application of radioisotopes is difficult for the measurements under severe conditions such as in high pressure or a high temperature. Therefore, we have developed a GiAMOC (Gamma-ray induced AMOC) system, which is a measurement method for generating positrons in a sample using inverse Thomson scattered gamma rays in UVSOR-III. In addition, the developed measurement system was used to measure the reference material for positron lifetime measurement.
