Development of gamma-ray induced positron annihilation spectroscopy

Taira, Yoshitaka*; Sugita, Kento*; Yamamoto, Ryohei*; Okano, Yasuaki*; Hirade, Tetsuya  

Positron annihilation spectroscopy is a powerful analytical method to observe single-atom vacant defects in crystals and microvoids in insulating materials. UVSOR-III installed at the Institute of Molecular Science promotes 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. In addition, since the sample is irradiated with gamma rays from the outside, measurement can be performed in an environment such as high temperature, high pressure, and immersion. We report on the generation of ultrashort pulse gamma rays and the development status of the positron lifetime measurement, and the positron age-momentum correlation measurement.
