QIC-6E - Ultra-low WET Quadrant Transmission Ionization Chamber

The QIC-6E is a high-precision quadrant transmission ionization chamber, essential in particle physics, beam diagnostics, and radiation therapy, including specialized applications like proton therapy for eye treatments. Its 6-centimeter diameter sensitive area and quadrant readout electrodes are perfectly suited for beam centering, flatness evaluation, and flux measurement. This chamber is particularly effective in low-energy beam settings, thanks to its minimal material thickness and ultra-thin, gold-plated electrode foils. It supports a wide array of particle types and energy levels and is compatible with various readout electronics. The QIC-6E is a key instrument in delivering accurate and minimal interference in proton therapy for eyes and other ion beam diagnostics.
