Thursday, February 21, 11:00 AM - Research Discussion
NSCL Lecture Hall

I will describe our experience of more than a decade on the development of instrumentation, methods and techniques with charged-particle auxiliary detectors used for in-flight spectroscopy of exotic nuclei. With recent examples I will make emphasis on Coulomb excitation and single-nucleon transfer, two powerful techniques for the study of structure at low energies using neutron-rich RIBS, especially near closed shells (e.g. 78Ni, 132Sn). Finally, I will describe prospects for future arrays based on newer technologies such as Silicon Photomultipliers.
