Development of gamma-ray induced positron annihilation spectroscopy

Positron annihilation spectroscopy is a powerful analytical method that can observe single-atom vacant defects in crystals and micro voids in insulating materials. UVSOR-III installed at the Institute of Molecular Science is promoting the development and user use of Gamma-ray induced positron annihilation spectroscopy (GiPAS) by ultrashort pulse gamma rays. Since the ultrashort pulse gamma rays generate positrons inside the material by pair production, positron annihilation experiments of bulk materials with a thickness of several cm can be performed non-destructively. We have succeeded in the generation of ultrashort pulse gamma rays and positron annihilation experiments such as the lifetime measurement and the positron age-momentum correlation measurement.
