The positron beam facility NEPOMUC (Neutron induced Positron Source Munich) at the neutron source FRM II provides a mono-energetic positron beam with high intensity of 109 moderated positrons per second. A new CDB spectrometer was set into operation which enables defect studies by conventional Doppler broadening spectroscopy (DBS) and element-specific measurements with coincident DBS (CDBS) at the near surface and in the bulk of a sample with a positron implantation energy of up to 30 keV. According to first spatially resolved measurements the CDB Spectrometer provides a lateral resolution of 200 µm. With an additional 100 nm thin Ni(100) remoderation foil in transmission geometry a resolution of 50 µm could be measured. In order to achieve a high yield of re-emitted moderated positrons, the Ni foil has to be annealed and surface contaminations such as C and O have to be removed. For this purpose the foil was heated to about 400∘C in a H-atmosphere of about 10−3 mbar. After this procedure and cooling down to room temperature, the moderation efficiency of the Ni(100) foil could be measured to about 10%.
