Electromagnetic Measurements with the KATRIN Pre-Spectrometer

Habermehl, Florian

The KArlsruhe TRItium Neutrino (KATRIN) Experiment will investigate the `electron antineutrino` mass with a sensitivity of 200meV/c2. A key to reach this sensititvity is a significant improvement of the MAC-E filter (Magnetic Adiabatic Collimation with Electrostatic filter) technology for the energy analysis of beta decay electrons. This thesis details the commissioning of the KATRIN pre-spectrometer, featuring a novel MAC-E filter design with regard to vacuum and electrostatic filtering.
