HISPEC - HIgh-resolution in-flight SPECtroscopy

The standard HISPEC (HIgh-resolution in-flight SPECtroscopy) setup will comprise inter alia beam tracking and identification detectors and the AGATA Germanium array to measure gamma rays arising from nuclear states excited in the course of secondary reactions of the radioactive beams. This can involve charged particle detectors (HYDE) or a plunger device for direct state lifetime measurements around the secondary target. The outgoing radioactive species are event-by-event identified by time-of-flight, energy loss and total energy (LYCCA) and/or a magnetic spectrometer.
