    • A force sensor based on a fiber-optic interferometric displacement transducer incorporated in an ultrahigh vacuum atomic force microscope is described. The operation of the sensor is based on balancing the tip-sample interfacial force using an electrostatic actuator. The electrodes of the actuator are formed by the grounded W cantilever and the metallized end facet of the optical fiber used by the interferometer. Chemical reduction of Ag by a wet chemical method is used for metal coating of the fiber end. A special masking procedure is used to obtain a window hole in the metal coating at the position of the fiber core to allow for optical beam output. Using a window instead of a semitransparent metal film allows us to save the low-finesse characteristics of the interferometer which facilitates the calibration of cantilever displacement. The performance of the sensor is discussed and exemplified by experimental results from force-separation measurements on the W-Au system in ultrahigh vacuum. (C) 2000 American Institute of Physics.

  • Imaging surface plasmon resonance sensor based on multiple wavelengths : Sensitivity considerations
  • 2000
  • Ingår i: Review of Scientific Instruments. - 0034-6748 .- 1089-7623. ; 71:9, s. 3530-3538

    • A new, multiple wavelength surface plasmon resonance apparatus for imaging applications is presented. It can be used for biosensing, e.g., for monitoring of chemical and biological reactions in real time with label-free molecules. A setup with a fixed incident angle in the Kretschmann configuration with gold as the supporting metal is described, both theoretically and experimentally. Simulations of the sensor response based on independently recorded optical (ellipsometric) data of gold show that the sensitivity for three-dimensional recognition layers (bulk) increases with increasing wavelength. For two-dimensional recognition layers (adlayer) maximum sensitivity is obtained within a limited wavelength range. In this situation, the rejection of bulk disturbances, e.g., emanating from temperature variations, decreases, with increasing wavelength. For imaging surface plasmon resonance the spatial resolution decreases with increasing wavelength. Hence, there is always a compromise between spatial resolution, bulk disturbance rejection, and sensitivity. Most importantly, by simultaneously using multiple wavelengths, it is possible to maintain a high sensitivity and accuracy over a large dynamic range. Furthermore, our simulations show that the sensitivity is independent of the refractive index of the prism. (C) 2000 American Institute of Physics. [S0034-6748(00)02909-9].

  • An equipment for three-dimensional spatially resolved gas analysis
  • 2000
  • Ingår i: Review of Scientific Instruments. - 0034-6748 .- 1089-7623. ; 71:9, s. 3513-3521

    • The apparatus described is able to measure three-dimensional temperature and partial pressure distributions in gas mixtures with a spatial resolution better than 0.5 mm. The measurements are performed in a well defined laminar gas flow in a duct of rectangular cross section. The gas mixture is sampled locally with a quartz tube orifice leak movable in three dimensions. Mass spectrometry is used for partial pressure measurements. The total pressure in the duct can be regulated in the range 50-760 Torr and the gas temperature can be varied between room temperature and 500 degrees C. The apparatus is primarily designed for studies of the distribution of reactants and products over catalytic surfaces. Because of the well defined gas flow in the duct the partial pressure distributions of reactants and products over the catalytic surface can be calculated with good accuracy. By comparing calculated pressure distributions to measured ones the local reaction rate on the catalytic surface as well as the pressures of reactants and products at the surface can be obtained. As an example it is shown how the hydrogen distribution over a platinum surface exposed to a mixture of hydrogen, oxygen, and argon can be used to calculate the local water formation rate on the platinum surface.

  • Note : Determination of torsional spring constant of atomic force microscopy cantilevers: Combining normal spring constant and classical beam theory
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Review of Scientific Instruments. - : American Institute of Physics (AIP). - 0034-6748 .- 1089-7623. ; 84:9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • A technique has been developed for the calculation of torsional spring constants for AFM cantilevers based on the combination of the normal spring constant and plate/beam theory. It is easy to apply and allow the determination of torsional constants for stiff cantilevers where the thermal power spectrum is difficult to obtain due to the high resonance frequency and low signal/noise ratio. The applicability is shown to be general and this simple approach can thus be used to obtain torsional constants for any beam shaped cantilever.

  • A high-pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy instrument for studies of industrially relevant catalytic reactions at pressures of several bars
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Review of Scientific Instruments. - : American Institute of Physics (AIP). - 0034-6748 .- 1089-7623. ; 90:10

    • We present a new high-pressure x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy system dedicated to probing catalytic reactions under realistic conditions at pressures of multiple bars. The instrument builds around the novel concept of a virtual cell in which a gas flow onto the sample surface creates a localized high-pressure pillow. This allows the instrument to be operated with a low pressure of a few millibar in the main chamber, while simultaneously a local pressure exceeding 1 bar can be supplied at the sample surface. Synchrotron based hard x-ray excitation is used to increase the electron mean free path in the gas region between sample and analyzer while grazing incidence <5 degrees close to total external refection conditions enhances surface sensitivity. The aperture separating the high-pressure region from the differential pumping of the electron spectrometer consists of multiple, evenly spaced, micrometer sized holes matching the footprint of the x-ray beam on the sample. The resulting signal is highly dependent on the sample-to-aperture distance because photoemitted electrons are subject to strong scattering in the gas phase. Therefore, high precision control of the sample-to-aperture distance is crucial. A fully integrated manipulator allows for sample movement with step sizes of 10 nm between 0 and -5 mm with very low vibrational amplitude and also for sample heating up to 500 degrees C under reaction conditions. We demonstrate the performance of this novel instrument with bulk 2p spectra of a copper single crystal at He pressures of up to 2.5 bars and C1s spectra measured in gas mixtures of CO + H-2 at pressures of up to 790 mbar. The capability to detect emitted photoelectrons at several bars opens the prospect for studies of catalytic reactions under industrially relevant operando conditions.

  • Autoresonant-spectrometric determination of the residual gas composition in the ALPHA experiment apparatus
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Review of Scientific Instruments. - 0034-6748 .- 1089-7623. ; 84:6, s. 065110-

    • Knowledge of the residual gas composition in the ALPHA experiment apparatus is important in our studies of antihydrogen and nonneutral plasmas. A technique based on autoresonant ion extraction from an electrostatic potential well has been developed that enables the study of the vacuum in our trap. Computer simulations allow an interpretation of our measurements and provide the residual gas composition under operating conditions typical of those used in experiments to produce, trap, and study antihydrogen. The methods developed may also be applicable in a range of atomic and molecular trap experiments where Penning-Malmberg traps are used and where access is limited.

  • Low temperature calibration of Manganin pressure gauges
  • 1997
  • Ingår i: Review of Scientific Instruments. - 0034-6748 .- 1089-7623. ; 68:2, s. 1344-1345

    • High pressures are often measured using the resistance of Manganin wires. However, the pressure coefficient of resistance is known to depend on temperature. We have measured this temperature dependence by comparing the output from a Manganin gauge with that of a well calibrated Zeranin gauge and determined a correction factor which enables us to measure the pressure at any temperature between 150 and 300 K with a temperature dependent error well below 0.5%.

  • Correction for dynamic bias error in transmission measurements of void fraction
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Review of Scientific Instruments. - 0034-6748 .- 1089-7623. ; 83:12, s. 125110-

    • Dynamic bias errors occur in transmission measurements, such as X-ray, gamma, or neutron radiography or tomography. This is observed when the properties of the object are not stationary in time and its average properties are assessed. The nonlinear measurement response to changes in transmission within the time scale of the measurement implies a bias, which can be difficult to correct for. A typical example is the tomographic or radiographic mapping of void content in dynamic two-phase flow systems. In this work, the dynamic bias error is described and a method to make a first-order correction is derived. A prerequisite for this method is variance estimates of the system dynamics, which can be obtained using high-speed, time-resolved data acquisition. However, in the absence of such acquisition, a priori knowledge might be used to substitute the time resolved data. Using synthetic data, a void fraction measurement case study has been simulated to demonstrate the performance of the suggested method. The transmission length of the radiation in the object under study and the type of fluctuation of the void fraction have been varied. Significant decreases in the dynamic bias error were achieved to the expense of marginal decreases in precision.

  • Neutron tomography of axially symmetric objects using 14 MeV neutrons from a portable neutron generator
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: Review of Scientific Instruments. - 0034-6748 .- 1089-7623. ; 85:8, s. 085109-

    • In nuclear boiling water reactor cores, the distribution of water and steam (void) is essential for both safety and efficiency reasons. In order to enhance predictive capabilities, void distribution assessment is performed in two-phase test-loops under reactor-relevant conditions. This article proposes the novel technique of fast-neutron tomography using a portable deuterium-tritium neutron generator to determine the void distribution in these loops.Fast neutrons have the advantage of high transmission through the metallic structures and pipes typically concealing a thermal-hydraulic test loop, while still being fairly sensitive to the water/void content. However, commercially available fast-neutron generators also have the disadvantage of a relatively low yield and fast-neutron detection also suffers from relatively low detection efficiency. Fortunately, some loops are axially symmetric, a property which can be exploited to reduce the amount of data needed for tomographic measurement, thus limiting the interrogation time needed.In this article, three axially-symmetric test objects depicting a thermal-hydraulic test loop have been examined; steel pipes with outer diameter 24 mm, thickness 1.5 mm and with three different distributions of the plastic material POM inside the pipes. Data recorded with the FANTOM fast-neutron tomography instrument have been used to perform tomographic reconstructions to assess their radial material distribution. Here, a dedicated tomographic algorithm that exploits the symmetry of these objects has been applied, which is described in the paper.Results are demonstrated in 20 rixel (radial pixel) reconstructions of the interior constitution and 2D visualization of the pipe interior is demonstrated. The local POM attenuation coefficients in the rixels were measured with errors (RMS) of 0.025, 0.020 and 0.022 cm-1, solid POM attenuation coefficient. The accuracy and precision is high enough to provide a useful indication on the flow mode, and a visualization of the radial material distribution can be obtained. A benefit of this system is its potential to be mounted at any axial height of a two-phase test section without requirements for pre-fabricated entrances or windows. This could mean a significant increase in flexibility of the void distribution assessment capability at many existing two-phase test loops.
