High-precision particle tracking devices allow for two-dimensional analyses of the material budget distribution of particle detectors and their periphery. In this contribution, the material budget of different targets is reconstructed from the width of the angular distribution of scattered beam particle at a sample under test. Positrons in the GeV-range serve as beam particles carrying enough momentum to traverse few millimetre thick targets whilst offering sufficient deflection for precise measurement. Reference measurements of the scattering angle distribution of targets of known thicknesses are presented that serve as calibration techniques required for tomographic reconstructions of inhomogeneous objects.



The measurements leading to these results have been performed at the Test Beam Facility at DESY Hamburg (Germany), a member of the Helmholtz Association (HGF).
