Software for Digital Coincidence Doppler Broadening Setup

Abstract:

Article Preview

An advanced digital measurement system for Coincidence Doppler broadening (CDB) technique is presented. Traditional CDB setups are based on shaping amplifiers and multi parameter multi-channel analyzers (MCA). We replaced them by 14-bit data acquisition card (DAQ). Replacing multi-parameter MCA by DAQ was realized also by several groups before, but in our setup the signal shaping tasks are performed digitally by software in a personal computer. Signals from high purity (HP) Ge detectors are sampled at preamplifier outputs. Pulse shaping is realized by a trapezoidal filter.
