NEPOMUC: Neutron induced positron source Munich

Christoph Hugenschmidt, Christian Piochacz


NEPOMUC, operated by the Technische Universität München and the Universität der Bundeswehr München, provides a high-intensity low-energy positron beam for applications in solid state and surface physics as well as for fundamental research in nuclear and atomic physics. The intensity amounts to > 109 moderated positrons per second at a beam energy of E = 1 keV.
