### Coulomb excitation of doubly-magic 132Sn at HIE-ISOLDE and development of escape-suppression shields for the MINIBALL spectrometer

Collective properties of the exotic doubly-magic nucleus 132Sn, in particular the first excited 2^+ and 3^- states, were investigated via safe Coulomb excitation. The experiment was performed in

### Alpha-event characterization for germanium detectors

A detailed study of alpha interactions on the passivated surface of a germanium detector is presented. Germanium detectors can be used to search for both neutrinoless double beta decay of 76Ge and

### Characterization of different surface passivation routes applied to a planar HPGe detector

• Physics
• 2015
The effects of different passivation methods applied to the same planar high-purity germanium gamma radiation detector have been studied. By means of the scanning with a low-energy collimated gamma

### The GALATEA test facility and a first study of alpha-induced surface events in a Germanium detector

Germanium detectors are a choice technology in fundamental research. They are suitable for the search for rare events due to their high sensitivity and excellent energy resolution. As an example,

This Letter of Intent has been submitted to the Scientific Committee of the INFN Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) in March 2004. It describes a novel facility at the LNGS to study the

### Pulse Shapes and Surface Effects in Segmented Germanium Detectors

It is well established that at least two neutrinos are massive. The absolute neutrino mass scale and the neutrino hierarchy are still unknown. In addition, it is not known whether the neutrino is a
