The LEPTA Facility for Fundamental Studies of Positronium Physics and Positron Spectroscopy
At present time the Low Energy Positron Toroidal Accumulator (LEPTA) at JINR is under commissioning with circulating positron beam. The LEPTA facility is a small positron storage ring equipped with the electron cooling system and positron injector. The maximum positron energy is of 10 keV. The storage ring is aimed for generation of direct fluxes of ortho-positronium (o-Ps), produced in recombination of the positron beam circulating in the ring with single pass cooling electron beam. The project has few goals: annihilation spectroscopy (PAS) to monitoring defects of nanometer sizes in materials as a function of depth managed by the positron energy in a rage of a few eV to 100 keV.
