Direct Detection of 14C At the Harwell Tandem

  • J H Shea (a1), T W Conlon (a1), James Asher (a1) and P M Read (a1)

Abstract

Direct detection of 14C using the Harwell 6MV Tandem accelerator has been achieved using a gaseous ion source. The implications of our results for the use of such sources in this role and for the machine, in general, are discussed.
