The 4p Detector


Home

 

The DESPEC neutron 4p detector (at present identical to the NERO detector - Hendryk Schatz schatz@nscl.msu.edu and http://www.nscl.msu.edu/tech/devices/nero/tech.html) will be used for measuring the decay properties of very neutron rich nuclei with a very low production.

 

 

 

The assembly of the neutron detector is formed by three concentric rings of proportional counters embedded in a 60cm x 60cm x 80cm polyethylene matrix. A centred 22.4 cm diameter hole crosses the matrix to allow the entrance of the neutron beam to the assembly. Each ring of proportional counters has the following characteristics:
