Gridded Ionization Chamber


ADC offers 3 types of standard and custom design Ion Chambers with Beam Position Monitoring.  These ion chambers have been tested at Advanced Photon Source (APS-USA) and are being used in many synchrotrons around the world (APS, ALS, DLS, NSRRC, BESSY, DESY, CHESS, ESRF, BSRF, CAMD, NSRL, PAL, NSLS, LNLS, CLS, SSRF, IHEP, ANKA, KEK, ASP, SPring-8, ELETTRA, MAXLab, …) with excellent results for the last four years. 


IC-400 & 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.  By connecting two Ion Chambers together at 90° you can determine the horizontal and vertical beam position. The system can be configured for air, vacuum, or ultrahigh vacuum operation through one of three interfaces.


One unique feature of the IC-400 & 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.  Custom configuration of the window and electrode sizes is available upon request.  

ADC offers a large assortment of synchrotron and neutron equipment including; High Precision Slits, Optical Tables, Lead Shielded Beam Pipes, Micro Ion Chambers, Split Two Axis Ion Chambers, Mirror Systems, Monochromators, Spectrometers, Insertion Devices (EPU, Wiggler, Planar, In-Vacuum, Apple), ID Measurement System and many other Beamline Components.  Our products are being used at many synchrotron, neutron, and x-ray facilities around the world including; APS, NSLS, ALS, DLS, NSRRC, BESSY, DESY, CHESS, ESRF, BSRF, CAMD, NSRL, PAL, LNLS, CLS, SSRF, ANKA, KEK, SPring-8, ASP, ELETTRA, MAX-LAB.
