Beam Characterization Studies at the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory at Brookhaven

The physicists at NSRL are actively studying the beam characteristics of those beam that are delivered to the target room.  These studies include

  1. Fragmentation: What is the exact makeup of the heavy ion beam; i.e. how much fragmentation has occurred before the beam strikes the target? 
  2. Beam Energy Measurement via
  3. Rate Studies and Dosimetry.
  4. Time Structure of Extracted Beam (under development)
  5. Dose Variation Near Targets (under development)
  6. Planar Beams using Collimation (under development)
