Transform Particle Detection Technology in the Nuclear Science Laboratory at Notre Dame
- Wanpeng Tan, University of Notre Dame
Thursday, May 16, 1:00 PM - Special Seminar
NSCL Seminar Room
Major effort in the recent development of particle detection technologies at Notre Dame will be presented. The talk will be focused on the projects that I am either in charge of or deeply involved with. Detector arrays for the detection of heavy charged particles, in particular, the Silicon detector Array at Notre Dame (SAND) with an ASIC readout system, will be discussed. Implementation of the Internal Conversion Electron Ball Array (ICEBALL) and preliminary results will be shown as well as its incorporation with HPGe detector arrays. Lastly, new ideas and development on neutron detection at Notre Dame will be discussed. All these developments have greatly enhanced the research capabilities at NSL for the study of nuclear physics, in particular, nuclear astrophysics.
