Simultaneous profiling of hydrogen and deuterium by 2.6 MeV (4)He ERDA using a DeltaE- E telescope detector
For depth profiling of hydrogen isotopes by elastic recoil detection analysis (ERDA) with 2.6 MeV (4)He ions a special DeltaE-E telescope type detector system was tested. It allows the separation of hydrogen and deuterium recoils as well as backscattered helium particles. For particle identification from the energy loss DeltaE a thin 3.7 µm silicon transmission detector was used while the residual energy was measured with a standard 100 µm PIPS silicon surface barrier detector. The depth profiles of deuterium and hydrogen were measured at plasma deposited a-C : H : D layers as well as at samples exposed to plasma discharges in the tokamak experiment ASDEX-Upgrade.
