The AGATA Project

For decades, the study of the gamma-ray decay from quantal states of the atomic nucleus has played a pivotal role in discovering and elucidating a wide range of phenomena. Each major technical

The AGATA Demonstrator Array at LNL

In the past 20 years, a wealth of nuclear structure information has been obtained with γ spectroscopy techniques, by using arrays of Compton-suppressed hyperpure germanium (HPGe) detectors. In these

The AGATA Campaign at GANIL

The Advanced Gamma Tracking Array, AGATA, is presently in its construction phase in which the European γ-spectroscopy research community is involved since several years. This powerful HPGe array

AGATA: Gamma-ray tracking in segmented HPGe detectors

The next generation of radioactive ion beam facilities, which will give experimental access to many exotic nuclei, are presently being developed. At the same time the next generation of high

A high resolution γ-ray array for the pandora plasma trap

The measurement of β-decay rates in plasma, simulating stellar-like conditions, is of high interest for the investigation of radionuclides involved in nuclear astrophysics processes. In the new



Gamma-ray tracking: New opportunities for nuclear physics

Introduction Over the last forty years, technical advances in the detection of gamma-radiation were accompanied by new discoveries and a better understanding of the structure of atomic nuclei,

TOPICAL REVIEW: Large arrays of escape suppressed spectrometers for nuclear structure experiments

The design and performance of large arrays of escape suppressed germanium spectrometers is described. These arrays have revolutionized the -ray spectroscopic study of the atomic nucleus. The

Developments in large gamma-ray detector arrays

Gamma-ray spectroscopy was revolutionized with the introduction of high energy-resolution semiconductor germanium (Ge) detectors in the early 1960s. This led to the large increase in sensitivity

Real time pulse shape analysis for the γ-interactions in AGATA

AGATA is presently one of the world main detector projects for Nuclear Physics. It will be the first real 4π gamma-ray spectrometer and will consist of segmented Germanium detectors. It is based on
