Upgrade of the Negative Ion Sources, Model SO-110, for the HVEE 1MV Tandetron Accelerator
Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University want to purchase an upgrade of the ion sources SO-110B to version SO-110C attached to the HVEE 1MV Tandetron accelerator. The present instrumental setup is used for cosmogenic isotope analysis, in particular 10Be, 14C and 26Al. A key aspect is introducing the possibility of 14CO2 analysis.
The ion source must have the following specifications:
1) Be fully integrated with the existing HVEE 1MV Tandetron accelerator (hardware and software).
2) Hybrid ion source capable of producing C- from both graphite and CO2.
3) Low inter-sample memory effect for gaseous and solid samples.
4) Can be integrated with the existing 50 capacity sample carousel.
5) Exterior must be at ground potential during operation
6) Negative ion extraction energy up to 52 keV.
For the 1st Negative ion source Model SO-110C: Instead of metal flange, Pb X-ray protected source-head observation window.
For the 2nd Negative ion source Model SO-110C: Instead of metal flange, Pb X-ray protected source-head observation window
Section IV: Procedure
The combination of requirements described above are fulfilled exclusively by one supplier. The possibility that there are other potential suppliers who could deliver the same has been objectively excluded by market consultations.
