Recent Updates to the FAUST Array Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Current advances in technology have enabled dramatic improvements to the performance of multi-detector arrays within the last 10 years. FAUST is a forward array of 68 Si-CsI(Tl) detector telescopes that has been in use since 1996. To take full advantage of current technology, FAUST has undergone an overhaul installing new preamplifiers from Zepto Systems and modifications to allow for Dual-Axis Dual-Lateral position sensitive detectors to be installed. A new calibration software package has also been developed utilizing a novel linearization algorithm. The combination of these upgrades has led to isotopic identification for elements in the Z= 1-13 range and has greatly increased the angular resolution of the array. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
