operation of the tandem accelerator and these two upgrade projects are presented in Section X
The major ancillary equipment associated with the tandem accelerator includes (a) a large-solid-
angle Enge split-pole magnetic spetrometer which was assembled and commissioned in parallel
with the accelerator upgrade project, (b) an comprehensive, integrated array of gamma-ray and x-
ray detectors [including, 5 (23%) Ge detectors with BGO Compton suppression shields; 5 low-
energy photon-spectrometers; an array of 38 BGO detectors operating as a multiplicity filter; 1
large (72%) Ge detector, and a 4-crystal compton polarimeter], (c) a segmented hemispherical array
of 35 neutron detectors with y-n discrimination, and (d) a large scattering chamber with a fast-
swinging arm for transferring and measuring delayed activities with halflives as short as 500 msec.
(See Figure I.1.) These devices and their specifications and are described in more detail below, as
integral parts of the discussions of the related research programs. Major parts of each of these
devices (except for the Enge spectrometer which was funded under a separate SRC) were
supported under the DOE's University Capital Equipment Program which continues to be a very
positive result of the 1987 DOE Heavy-Ion Facility Review Committee chaired by Peter Paul. The
specific projects that have been funded at Yale during the first 4 years of this program are tabulated
Table 1.1: Capital Equipment Projects:
Large Scattering Chamber 82,000.
Charge-Particle Barrel 100.000.
BGO Multiplicity Filter $135,000.
VAX Cluster 160.000.
Si(SB) Array $113,000.
ESTU Terminal Upgrade 155.000.
4-Crystal Ge Polarimeter $113,200.
VAX Upgrade 160.800.
