Multichannel Analyzer (MCA) Model 4110

The model 4110 multichannel analyzer (MCA) is a high resolution Wilkinson type multichannel analyzer. The 4010 is a single NIM mode that is specifically designed for use in nuclear and x-ray spectroscopy and connects via a USB port to PC. Also, MCA is fully supported by DAS software. The MCA records and stores pulses according to their height. Each storage unit is called a channel. The height of the pulse has some known relationship usually proportional to the energy of the particle that enters into the detector. Each pulse is in turn stored in a particular channel corresponding to a certain energy. The distribution of pulses in the channels is an image of the distribution of the energies of the particles. At the end of a counting period, the spectrum that was recorded may be displayed on the screen of the MCA. There are many experiments for the study of events in terms of more than one parameter. Such requirements occur in

  • Coincidence measurements where the energy spectrum from both detectors need be analyzed.
  • Simultaneous measurement of energy and mass distribution of fission fragments.
  • Study of energy and angular dependence of nuclear reactions involving many particles, etc.
