Germanium Detector Array at the FMA Focal Plane


Preliminary radioactive beam coulex experiments have been performed at the FMA using the Yale gamma array at the back of the FMA (photo #1, photo #2). Future experiments are planned, but it is unclear what array will be used at the back of the FMA. For more information contact Kim Lister (
A different application of focal plane Ge detectors is in the study of fine structure in radioactive decay. A single Ge detector is often placed directly behind the DSSD chamber and records the energy and time of gamma rays emitted in decay events.
