©, Copyright Taylor & Francis. Fermi energy heavy ion collisions provide a valuable tool to research nuclear reaction dynamics and the hot nuclear matter Equation of State (EOS) at sub/supra-normal densities. In this energy regime, multi-fragmentation becomes important and the ejected light particles and intermediate mass fragments (IMFs) with Z > 2 carry a great deal of information on the thermal and chemical evolution of the reaction system under investigation. Existing detectors  include those with excellent isotopic resolution with limited angular coverage or excellent geometric acceptance with moderate isotopic resolution. Much information has been extracted from experiments performed with these detectors [2–9]. Ideally, a detector array with both excellent isotopic resolution and with a nearly 4π angular coverage of discrete telescopes with a high granularity is desirable. NIMROD–ISiS at the Cyclotron Institute, TAMU, is designed for such purposes and provides a powerful detector array capable of both charged particle and neutron detection in one apparatus.
