ATLAS Proposal Gammasphere Checklist - Submission Form

The use of the FMA and Gammasphere, combined or separately, can involve a number of detection systems and special features. The details of how the measurement will be done should be presented as part of the proposal. Some information on these systems is on the web at For assistance in preparing a proposal and for helping the Program Advisory Committee get a more accurate picture of what is planned, we ask you to use the checklist below. Please check the devices that will be needed for the proposed measurement, and include the checklist with your proposal. Note that some of the items are still under development - others may require considerable planning. Note also that a number of the 'primary' detectors (those that may be needed to detect products directly from the target, before the FMA) were developed and built by groups outside of Argonne. The persons to be contacted with any questions regarding the various detectors and systems that may be needed for your measurement are listed on this sheet; their e-mail addresses are given below.

Fields in Bold are required.
