Active sample manipulation with electrostatic beams: a different way of bridging the high-voltage gap — •Francesco Guatieri, Kilian Brenner, and Christoph Hugenschmidt — Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum (MLZ), Technical University of Munich, Lichtenbergstr. 1, 85748 Garching, Germany
Most electrostatic positron beams used to perform surface studies are accelerated to the desired implantation energy by floating the target to a high electrostatic potential relative to ground. The presence of tens on kilovolts of electric potential makes the use of instrumentation attached directly to the sample inconvenient. The conventional solution to this hurdle consists in wiring insulated connections from the sample to a high-voltage galvanic decoupling placed outside of the experimental chamber far away from the sample holder. This solution carries limitations on the kind and amount of electrical connections employed. We will present, instead, a novel approach to in-operando sample manipulation that we have developed to be used at the Doppler broadening spectrometer installed on the NEPOMUC positron source, which implements the galvanic insulation in situ and removes many of the limitations imposed by conventional solutions.
