SIRIUS project (spectroscopy & identification of rare isotopes using S$^3$)

SIRIUS is a state-of-the-art detector system for nuclear decay spectroscopy that will be mounted at the focal plane of S3 (Super Separator Spectrometer), which is part of the new SPIRAL2 facility at GANIL, Caen in France. Such a system requires high performance as it is dedicated to the study of very exotic nuclei. It is the result of collaboration between GANIL CSNSM, IRFU, and IPHC It is composed of a succession of detectors (Trackers, Silicon detector DSSD and Tunnel plus an array of five clover Germanium detectors). This set-up is mounted in a compact geometry. The energy measurement varies from 50 keV to over 500 MeV with high precision (2 x 10-3) at low energies and 1 % for the detection of heavy ions. A major challenge has been the development of new electronics with a very large dynamic range maintaining an adequate energy resolution for the measured particles (with energies from a few hundred keV up to 500 MeV).

Abstract

SIRIUS is a state-of-the-art detector system for nuclear decay spectroscopy that will be mounted at the focal plane of S$^3$ (Super Separator Spectrometer), which is part of the new SPIRAL2 facility at GANIL, Caen in France. Such a system requires high performance as it is dedicated to the study of very exotic nuclei. It is the result of collaboration between GANIL CSNSM, IRFU, and IPHC It is composed of a succession of detectors (Trackers, Silicon detector DSSD and Tunnel plus an array of five clover Germanium detectors). This set-up is mounted in a compact geometry. The energy measurement varies from 50 keV to over 500 MeV with high precision (2 x 10$^{-3}$) at low energies and 1 % for the detection of heavy ions. A major challenge has been the development of new electronics with a very large dynamic range maintaining an adequate energy resolution for the measured particles (with energies from a few hundred keV up to 500 MeV).
