A Review of Development Work on Carbon Stripper Foils at Daresbury and Harwell

  • D. W. L. Tolfree


Carbon foils are used extensively as electron strippers for ion beams of MeV energies in tandem accelerators, as exciters at keV energies in beam foil spectroscopy and as backings for nuclear targets. For heavy ions serious limitations exist in foil lifetime.
