ANKA Custom Ion Chambers

The Ion Chamber’s design was based on IC-500 series.  The design was modified to meet customer specific requirements (Special connectors, environments, collector plate separation distance) for their beam line.


IC-500 series ion chambers are designed for precise, low noise x-ray measurement.  The device allows users to determine the change in beam position in a single axis by comparing two signals that are created as the beam passes through the Ion Chamber. 


One unique feature of the IC-500 series precision ion chambers is the incorporation of a split collector plate.  The electrode is split in a saw tooth configuration with a height of approximately 10mm, 15mm, and 25mm such that, when the differential current is computed, allows use as a beam position monitor.
