Target Lab

Target lab: a chemical lab specialized in nuclear targets preparation


The target laboratory can prepare thin films to be used as targets for nuclear experiments. The rolling procedure and the evaporation technique are used to get them self supporting or deposited on a backing support. The thickness is usually measured by exploiting the alpha particles energy loss.

In the table below we show a few examples of typical targets produced.

For special needs or further information please contact A. Massara.
