Recent Results with the Active Target MAYA

Abstract : The active target MAYA, built at GANIL in the beginning of the years 2000, is a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) for low-energy nuclear reactions where the gas is employed as a target. By increasing the luminosity, it allowed several type of experiments, in particular with secondary beams, from resonance scattering to fission study. We will present here some of the last results, focusing on the study of giant resonances in exotic nuclei. Preliminary results of the prototype of the future active target: the “ACTive TARget and Time Projection Chamber” (ACTAR TPC) built with a denser (16384 pixels) pad plane and digital electronic is also discussed.
