A versatile gas-flow proportional counter for Mössbauer spectroscopy
This article presents a versatile gas-flow proportional counter for surface and transmission Mössbauer spectroscopy, suitable for studies with 57Fe, 119Sn and 151Eu isotopes. The main advantages obtained by new design are: (1) the height of the detection volume can be changed in large limits from 0 to 38 mm, (2) the detection volume can be choose symmetrical or not in respect with anode plan, (3) the anode replacement is easily (4) and different anode configuration can be used. The characteristics of the detector, operating at room temperature, are reported.
