Abstract

A new photon-induced positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy approach has been developed using an Sband compact electron linac at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). The high energy (<42 MeV), intense (109 photons pulse-1), and ultrashort pulse (3 ps pulse width) photon beam creates positrons throughout an entire sample via pair production. A positron lifetime spectrum can be obtained by measuring the time difference between the accelerator's RF frequency and the detection time of the annihilation gamma rays. The positron lifetime for yttriastabilized zirconia has been successfully measured.
