Physics cases of increasing interest in the recent years, such as the study of double charge exchange reactions for neutrino physics, require the study of very suppressed reaction channels in medium-heavy ion induced nuclear reactions. The main experimental challenges are the possibility to identify and detect the medium-heavy quasi-projectiles and the capability to measure very low cross-sections (few nb) with high sensitivity at very forward angles, including zero degree. The experimental techniques adopted in the setup of the MAGNEX magnetic spectrometer to face these issues are described in this paper.

Abstract

Physics cases of increasing interest in the recent years, such as the study of double charge exchange reactions for neutrino physics, require the study of very suppressed reaction channels in medium-heavy ion induced nuclear reactions. The main experimental challenges are the possibility to identify and detect the medium-heavy quasi-projectiles and the capability to measure very low cross-sections (few nb) with high sensitivity at very forward angles, including zero degree. The experimental techniques adopted in the setup of the MAGNEX magnetic spectrometer to face these issues are described in this paper.
