DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH PERFORMANCE TIME OF FLIGHT SPECTROMETER FOR PHOTODISINTEGRATION STUDIES USING TAGGED PHOTONS

Objective



The Universities of Glasgow and Tuebingen will collaborate in the design and construction of a high performance time-of-flight spectrometer for hadron detection. Considerable improvements compared to existing systems are anticipated so that an extremely powerful facility will result. Together with the 840 MeV electron accelerator and the photon tagging shystem which will both be operational at the University of Mainz in 1989, this spectrometer will provide a uniquely versatile and powerful system for investigations of medium energy photonuclear reactions. The collaborators will use it for experiments on the photodisintegration of light nuclei which will have a major influence on microscopic models of nuclei and their reactions.
