Re: Power Supply Suggestions

<t>I'm currently using a rack-mounted unit by Glassman High Voltage out of High Bridge, New Jersey. It has a variable output from 0-125KV DC at 0-7.5mA. It even has reversible polarity for glow discharge mode. It only weighs 30 pounds and takes up only 5.25 inches of panel space. After many botched ...

<t>I'm interested in extracting the energy from the single 3MeV and double 2MeV alphas from the immediate decay of unstable C12 from the p-B11 reaction. Chamber design is an issue in a steady state system as the diameter of the chamber has to be just the right size for the alphas to touch, not slam ...

Re: ZnS:Ag phosphor company information

1" diameter to butt up against the PMT I have.
Eljen's liquid scintillator also contains small ammounts of Hydrocarbons which effectively increase cross-sectional collisional probabilities in the scintillator material.
