Project for development of a downsized AMS system based on the surface stripper technique

Fujita, Natsuko  ; Matsubara, Akihiro; Kimura, Kenji; Jinno, Satoshi   ; Kokubu, Yoko   

Over the last decade, significant technological advances were made to downsize the AMS systems. Japan Atomic Energy Agency has started a project for developing a prototype downsized AMS system (with the footprint of the system is 1.9 m $$times$$ 1.9 m) based on the surface stripper technique. Although the system configuration using an ion source, magnets, and detectors is similar to that in conventional systems, there is no tandem accelerator as well as a gas stripper. The ion acceleration is provided in the ion source (maximum ion energy 40 keV). For proof-of-principle experiments, we have planned two steps: (1) Observation of the specular reflection and the dissociation by using a compact electrostatic analyzer located just behind the stripper, and (2) Demonstration of $$^{14}$$C measurement, along with the experimental confirmation of the isobar suppression capability of the surface stripper.
