Title: Multi-MHz time-of-flight electronic bandstructure imaging of graphene on Ir(111)

Abstract

In the quest for detailed spectroscopic insight into the electronic structure at solid surfaces in a large momentum range, we have developed an advanced experimental approach. It combines the 3D detection scheme of a time-of-flight momentum microscope with an optimized filling pattern of the BESSY II storage ring. Here, comprehensive data sets covering the full surface Brillouin zone have been used to study faint substrate-film hybridization effects in the electronic structure of graphene on Ir(111), revealed by a pronounced linear dichroism in angular distribution. The method paves the way to 3D electronic bandmapping with unprecedented data recording efficiency.

  • A time-of-flight (TOF) multi-probe system has been developed to measure the distribution of positron-emitting tracers in the body. Time-of-flight information in this system is used as the primary position information in the direction between the detector probes. The system uses two banks of eight detector probes, each of which is composed of a truncated pyramid BaF{sub 2} crystal and a 26 mm diameter photomultiplier tube (Hamamatsu R5320). The average coincidence time resolution for possible 64 coincidence pairs is 180 ps FWHM, which corresponds to 2.7 cm in space. The system performance such as count rate and imaging capabilities were evaluatedmore » using phantoms. The results show that a low-cost positron imaging system can be constructed using the TOF detector probes.« less

  • High resolution optically pumped NMR (OPNMR) experiments are used to resolve fine features in the spin-dependent electronic structure of the valence bands in semi-insulating GaAs. By theoretically calculating oscillations in the OPNMR signal intensity with respect to the excitation energy, we have mapped out the conduction band electronic spin polarization under optical pumping. Comparison with a theoretical analysis of the oscillatory experimental features allows the extraction of semiconductor energy band parameters.
  • A high-resolution, multi-stop, time-to-digital converter (TDC) was designed and developed to precisely measure the times-of-flight (TOF) of incident neutrons responsible for induced fission and capture reactions on actinide targets. The minimum time resolution is ±1 ns. The TDC design was implemented into a single, dual-wide CAMAC module. The CAMAC bus is used for command and control as well as an alternative data output. A high-speed ECL interface, compatible with LeCroy FERA modules, was also provided for the principle data output path. An Actel high-speed field programmable gate array (FPGA) chip was incorporated with an external oscillator and an internal multiplemore » clock phasing system. This device implemented the majority of the high-speed register functions, the state machine for the FERA interface, and the high-speed counting circuit used for the TDC conversion. An external microcontroller was used to monitor and control system-level changes. In this work we discuss the performance of this TDC module as well as its application.« less
