# First experiments with the FUSION detector

Abstract : The Fusion Utility for Secondary Ions (FUSION) has been built to measure the fusion–fission cross section induced by radioactive beams at energies around the barrier. A set of 10 parallel plate avalanche counters measures the fission fragments which are stopped therein. Twenty plastic scintillators, surrounding the inner shell of PPACs, detect the eventual residue from the projectile. This detector could work in different geometry and allow measurements of low cross section with very weak beams. The measurements at GANIL of the fission cross sections at barrier energies for $^{9,11}$Be on U are reported.
