Active target as a tool for nuclear spectroscopy and reactions

Abstract : By the very nature of secondary beams, their intensity is limited, particularly for beams of the highest interest - farthest away from stability. Active targets, which can be de- scribed as time projection chamber (TPC)-like detectors in which the detector gas is the target, have been shown to have the highest sensitivity for quantitative high resolu- tion studies of rare events. The physics cases that can be addressed with these devices are reviewed and some of the rst results obtained with rst generation active targets are detailed. Finally some general ideas on the next generation of active targets are presented.
