The currently being built NEutron Detector Array (NEDA) is the neutron multiplicity filter, which will be used as ancillary device for the state of the art germanium arrays (like AGATA, GALILEO), with both intense stable and radioactive ion beams. The gain in detection efficiency, especially for the events of high neutron multiplicity, will allow to address regions of nuclear chart not...

The R&D work on new scintillator materials produced several high performing scintillators with an energy resolution better than that of NaI (6-7% at 662 keV). The best known is LaBr3:Ce because of its excellent and unmatched properties in term of energy (3 % at 662 keV), time (< 500 ps) resolution and efficiency (density of 5.1 g/cm3) for gamma ray detection. However, very new materials as...

The SpecMAT Active Target will consist of a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) surrounded with a gamma-detection array. This detector will be used for studies of exotic isotopes produced via transfer reactions. In an active target, an inner volume is filled with a gas which functions as both a target and a detection medium. Interacting with the gas reaction products ionise the gas along their path....
