Aside from energy spectra absolute electromagnetic transition probabilities are important observables for the investigation of nuclear structure. With the advent of radioactive beam experiments as well as experiments employing specific nuclear reactions by which nuclei far from the valley of stability can be investigated with the methods of gamma ray spectroscopy, e.g. deep-inelastic...

The status of the Neutron Wall and recent results obtained at GANIL will be reviewed. Perspectives and status of the R&D for the next generation neutron detector array NEDA will be presented.
46. Gamma ray and recoil coincident measurements , application in lifetime determination of a short-lived nuclear state
Piotr Bednarczyk (IFJ-PAN)
A considerable improvement of measured &gamma-spectra can be achieved when &gamma-rays are detected in coincidence with fusion-evaporation reaction residues selected by the Recoil Filter Detector (RFD). RFD provides a velocity vector of fast recoils and allows for significant Doppler broadening minimization. This unique feature of RFD permits as well to evaluate a lifetime-&tau of an...

In view of new generation facilities such as SPIRAL2 and FAIR, a new instrumentation has to be developed in order to perform reaction studies in optimum conditions. For this purpose, the GASPARD and HYDE projects aim to combine large solid-angle, high granularity Silicon Stripped detector arrays with the forthcoming major gamma arrays as AGATA or PARIS. The use of Digital electronics is...

DIAMANT is a light charged particle detector system of CsI(Tl) scintillators having a nearly 4π solid angle coverage. It has been developed in a collaboration by ATOMKI (Debrecen), CENBG (Bordeaux) and the University of Napoli (Naples). It has been used within the gamma-ray spectrometer arrays EUROBALL, EXOGAM and AFRODITE, as an ancillary detector to select or reject coincidence events...
