Plastic scintillator detectors for the study of transfer and breakup reactions at intermediate energies
Description: The detection of light particles associated with projectile like fragments can be used to separate transfer and breakup reactions provided the detectors cover a large solid angle. Three detection systems are described: (1) a ..pi.. detector in the shape of a cube, 20 cm on a side, (2) a X-Y position sensitive ..delta..E-E detector having an area of 20 x 20 cm/sup 2/, and (3) a multi-element detector consisting of eight position sensitive strips. The latter two detectors are of the phoswich type having the thin element of NE102 (tau = 2.5 ns) and the thick element of NE115 (tau = 225 ns). The performance characteristics of the three detectors are described. 6 references, 13 figures.
