2MV STAR Tandetron Accelerator


The 2MV tandetron accelerator, named STAR, can perform both IBA and AMS analyses. it has three ion sources which include two duoplasmatron sources, for hydrogen and helium, and a solid target sputter source used primarily for ionising carbon samples for AMS. The STAR accelerator currently has 3 beamlines, a multi-elemental surface analysis beamline (IBA), a high resolution depth profiling beamline (IBA), and a 14C beamline (AMS).
