Trackingoflow energyheavy ions Two applications in nuclear physics
  • Upstream beam tracking at medium energy (>10MeV/u)
  • Downstream reaction product tracking at low energy (<1MeV/u)
  • Event by event detection

  • <1µm of Mylar
  • σtime ~ 100ps
  • σspace ~ 600µm
  • VAMOS Spectometer Focal plane size : 10 x 40 cm2Se-Dwith one 2D cathodeX+Y 2D cathode (strips)X cathode(strips)anode (wires)anode (wires)Y cathode(wires)
  • similar time resolution σtime ~ 100ps
  • more robust
  • higher counting rate : up to 2.106pps
  • New Prototype for S3
  • SED2D sym. chamber of 201x138 mm2 or 68x47 1D strips
  • Mounted since sept 2011, time resolution on-going
  • AFTER-SED ASIC to connect
  • Spatial resolution to be done
  • Conclusions & PerspectivesUpstream Beam Detectors: MWPC good time and position resolutionBUTLimited counting rate + not so thin (5µm of Mylar)Downstream reaction product detectors: emissive foil MWPC as 1st generation  2D cathode placegood time resolution, very thin, high couting rate BUTpoor position resolution σspace ~ 600µm
  • To come
  • improve position resolution of emissive foil detector
  • test of other secondary electron detector : Micromegas
  •  use emissive foil detectors for upstream applications
