Magnetic Field Inhomogeneities and Their Influence on Transmission and Background at the KATRIN Main Spectrometer

Reich, Jan Christoph

The goal of the KATRIN experiment is to measure the absolute mass of the electron-antineutrino with a sensitivity of 200 meV by analyzing the shape of the tritium-beta-decay energy spectrum. The energy analysis is done with a large scale MAC-E filter (magnetic adiabatic collimation and electrostatic filter) with a magnetic field of 0.3 mT in the analyzing plane. This work investigates small disturbances of the magnetic field influencing the transmission and background properties of the setup.
