Abstract

This paper describes the construction and results of tests of thin-film ion detectors for an acceleration mass spectrometer (AMS). The spectrometer has been developed and constructed in the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (BINP) for the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. A telescope made from several consecutively passed counters provides a low background.
