AD-25-500 Russian alpha particle detector

This area is for discussions involving any fusion related radiation metrology issues. Neutrons are the key signature of fusion, but other radiations are of interest to the amateur fusioneer as well.

AD-25-500 Russian alpha particle detector

Post by Chris Mullins » Wed Nov 14, 2018 12:58 pm

In my search for a Canberra PIPS detector, I ran across an ebay listing for AD-25-500 (PDF datasheet here: https://scintillators.ru/datasheet/Alph ... 25-500.pdf) for $250, or for $350 you also get a charge amplifier (the a-CSA: https://scintillators.ru/index_en_products.htm). There's even an online review of it: http://physicsopenlab.org/2018/10/08/al ... od-csa-sa/.

Has anyone run across this before? If it looks legit, I'll get one and try to use it with the Canberra 7401 acquired at the last HEAS, and/or the CSA they also sell.

Well, looks like no one's got any background on it. I'm going to get one, and I'll post any results here. Estimated delivery is January, so it will be a while ....

It looks like you will be the pioneer here. Let us know how it goes and what your results are with this unknown.
