Studying heavy-ion collisions with coverage near zero degrees using FAUST–QTS Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Heavy-ion collisions around the Fermi energy provide a rich environment for investigating reaction dynamics and provide an opportunity to explore the transition from quasi-fission to multi-fragmentation. A new detection system, FAUST-QTS, has been commissioned at Texas A&M University in order to investigate the reaction dynamics in this transitional energy regime. FAUST-QTS is constructed through the coupling of the FAUST array to a large bore quadrupole triplet spectrometer, and designed to detect heavy fragments near the beam axis coincident with lighter particles.
