Susanne Mertens's Background Processes in the Electrostatic Spectrometers of PDF

By Susanne Mertens

Neutrinos stay the main mysterious and, arguably, the main attention-grabbing debris of the traditional version as their intrinsic homes equivalent to absolute mass scale and CP homes are unknown. The open query of absolutely the neutrino mass scale should be addressed with exceptional accuracy through the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) scan, at the moment lower than development. This thesis focusses at the spectrometer a part of KATRIN and history techniques therein. a variety of history assets comparable to small Penning traps, in addition to nuclear decays from unmarried radon atoms are absolutely characterised the following for the 1st time. most significantly, besides the fact that, it was once attainable to lessen the historical past within the spectrometer through greater than 5 orders of importance by means of casting off Penning traps and by means of constructing a very new history relief process via stochastically heating trapped electrons utilizing electron cyclotron resonance (ECR). The paintings superbly demonstrates that the stumbling blocks and demanding situations in measuring absolutely the mass scale of neutrinos should be met effectively if novel experimental instruments (ECR) and novel computing equipment (KASSIOPEIA) are mixed to permit virtually background-free tritium ß-spectroscopy.

6 T) to the analyzing plane s − → −4 ( B = 3 · 10 T). The reduction of the magnetic field proceeds over a length a of around 10 m in the main spectrometer, assuring a smooth change and therefore an adiabatic motion of the electrons. For electrons moving adiabatically the orbital magnetic moment μ is conserved. In first order, μ is given by E⊥ μ≈ − → ≈ const. 4) → s = 12, 000 , B for Bs and Ba given above. The index indicates the position (s = source and a = a is, as the magnetic analyzing plane).
