Mesure de luminescence induite par faisceaux d'ions lourds rapides résolue à l'echelle picoseconde

Abstract : We developed an instrument for measuring the luminescence induced by a heavy ion beam (nucleons  12) and energy in the range of MeV / nucleon. Based on a single photon counting method obtained by coincidences, the device can provide in the same run a 16-channel energy spectrum in the UV-visible- IR region (185-920 nm) and a time-resolved response in the range of ns up to µs for each channel. Temperature measurements can be performed from room temperature down to 30K.This work places particular emphasis on data extraction methods: Once the need to deconvolve the signals demonstrated the evaluation of different instrument profiles (simulated and reconstructed from measurements) leads to a systematic temporal characterization of each component of the device. Then, these instrumental profiles are used in two deconvolution methods: least squares first followed by maximum entropy method.Two typical materials are tested: the Strontium Titanate for the study of the dynamics of the electronic excitation, and a commercial scintillator, the BC400, for the study of the aging and the decrease of performances with fluence. In both cases, we have been able to highlight the presence of an ultrafast component of subnanosecond time constant.
