Abstract

"This thesis deals with the feasibility of efficiently detecting low energy positive ions, those with energies of less than several hundred electron volts, using phosphors.

The scintillation technique, first used visually and greatly improved in the last ten years by the use of a photomultiplier tube, has greatly advanced detection in high energy fields. The photomultiplier is capable of delivering milliampere pulses of current of short duration and these can be registered directly by the many electronic devices currently in use.

Extensive work has been done with phosphors which scintillate under which energy bombardment, due in part to their wide use in the television industry, but very little is known of their use for the detection of low energy positive ions"--Introduction, page1.
