AODO: Secondary ion emission and surface modification

Abstract : In order to study the sputtering of secondary ions from well characterized surfaces, we constructed a new UHV system named AODO. It consists of a detector chamber, a target preparation and analysis chamber, and a target transfer rod. We present the lay-out of this new instrument. The detector allows measuring the time-of-flight of emitted secondary ions and their position on a 2D imaging detector (XY-TOF imaging technique). The analysis chamber can be used to study surface modification by means of LEED (low energy electron diffraction). We show preliminary results of the evolution of the LEED patterns as a function of the projectile fluence during irradiation of HOPG (highly oriented pyrolytic graphite) with slow Xe14+ ions at ARIBE (the low energy, highly charged ion beam line of the French heavy ion accelerator GANIL).
