P.I.X.E. SPECTRA MEASURED WITH GOOD RESOLUTIONF. FOLKMANN, F. FREDERIKSEN and H. LOFT NIELSEN

A spectrometer has been built with a curved crystal and a position sensitive detector to measure x rays in a limited region with good resolution and high efficiency. A collimated 55Fe source, electroplated onto a Pt wire, was used for checking the proportional detector. Geometrical considerations for optimating the instrument are discussed. Applications to Particle Induced X-ray Emission are considered, both for diagram lines excited by protons and heavy ion excited satellite lines.
