EAGLE-EYE first run on U-200P beam

Advanced FAST-TIMING techniques have been recently applied at the Heavy Ion  Laboratory UW with help of EAGLE HPGe array (16 Ge ACS) combined with the EYE (sEquential gamma raYs dEtection-  24 LaBr3) setup. The EYE setup have been developed by Michał Kowalczyk and Ernest Grodner supported by technical and scientific team from HIL UW, NCNR and european FATIMA to hold 24 LaBr detectors.
The EAGLE-EYE combination allows to apply several fast-timing techniques for lifetime measurements within 10ps-10ns range:

  • cleaning the LaBr energy spectra by gating on gammas registered by HPGe detectors
  • cleaning the LaBr energy spectra with help of delayed coincidences registered by HPGe detectors
  • using standard gamma-gamma coincidences registered by the EYE LaBr array

First experiments with triple HPGe-LaBr-LaBr coincidences have been
performed with 24 LaBr detectors delivered by FATIMA collaboration at
February and March 2018. More details see http://wudas2.slcj.uw.edu.pl/spin-chirality/eagle_eye/placement/placement.html

Lecture on Coulomb excitation

In the summer semester at the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw, ul. Pasteura 5, there is a lecture by dr Katarzyna Wrzosek-Lipska entitled “Coulomb excitations – a tool for testing atomic nuclei”.

All interested are invited on Thursdays, from March 8, 2018, at 9.15 to room 1.01. The lecture is in Polish.
