Title: Microsphere plate detectors used with a compact Mott polarimeter for time-of-flight studies

Abstract

A compact retarding-potential Mott polarimeter combined with microsphere plates (MSP) as electron detectors was built to perform spin-resolved time-of-flight electron spectroscopy. The comparison of the performance of MSP and channeltron detectors shows that the MSP detector has a better time resolution but a lower efficiency. The overall time resolution of the system was determined to be 350 ps using synchrotron radiation pulses. (c) 2000 American Institute of Physics.
