Gamma-Ray Detectors at the Target Position


Recoil-Gamma studies can be performed with ten Germanium detectors from the ANL-Notre Dame gamma-ray detector facility. They get installed in a frame designed to surround a small, thin-walled aluminum target chamber. A dedicated set of electronics has been purchased for this array to expedite the setup of the detectors at the FMA. Although this is the standard gamma-ray array for use at the FMA, a larger array called AYEball was constructed and used between August and December, 1996. Future plans include the installation of GAMMASPHERE at the FMA at the end of 1997.
