DESPEC - DEcay SPECtroscopy
In the DESPEC (DEcay SPECtroscopy) experiment, the radioactive ions are slowed down to come to rest in a stack of highly segmented Silicon-based, implantation and decay detector system (AIDA). This system will be surrounded by a compact high resolution Germanium array, neutron detectors, fast BaF2 detectors and/or a total absorption gamma-ray spectrometer. A magnet for isomeric moment measurements is an additional option. Here, decay studies of dripline nuclei will be the core interest, in particular towards the neutron-rich r-process lines. It will also be possible to combine HISPEC and DESPEC for recoil decay studies, with DESPEC detectors being placed at the end of the magnetic spectrometer.
