The UltraLo-1800 is a revolutionary new design for low background alpha particle counters that employs electronic background suppression to drive achievable background rates to 0.0001 alphas/cm2/hr and below. This is a factor of 50 or more better than can be achieved by the conventional proportional counter systems that are currently available, and results in:
Monitor your ultra low alpha materials (0.001 alphas/cm2/hr) with accurate measurements in just one day.
Ensure that the materials you receive satisfy your design requirements by using the most sensitive instrument available.
Certify that the product you ship complies with your customers’ specifications.
The UltraLo-1800 is a windowless, ultra low background alpha particle counter designed to measure the alpha particle emissivity of solid materials.
CounterMeasure – the interface to the UltraLo-1800 system – is a powerful data collection, analysis, and instrument control application. The software capabilities include the display of: energy spectra, time stamped events, system health metrics, measurement error evolution, and much more. Sophisticated yet intuitive, this tool provides users with unique insights into their alpha particle emission measurments.
Estimate of sample emissivity (with error bars) is continuously updated as the measurement proceeds.
Sample alpha counts time stamped throughout measurement.
