An upgraded and improved version of the Focal Plane Detector (FPD) of the large-acceptance magnetic spectrometer MAGNEX is described here. The FPD consists of a tracker operating at low pressure and of a silicon detector wall. Thanks to a different geometry of the electron multiplication and induction elements, the new detector guarantees a superior signal to noise ratio, resulting in a more accurate tracking and a cleaner identification of the detected heavy ions. The new detector has been tested by using a 18O beam at an energy of 84 MeV. A description of the new FPD that pinpoints the innovation and the obtained performances is given and discussed in details.

Abstract

An upgraded and improved version of the Focal Plane Detector (FPD) of the large-acceptance magnetic spectrometer MAGNEX is described here. The FPD consists of a tracker operating at low pressure and of a silicon detector wall. Thanks to a different geometry of the electron multiplication and induction elements, the new detector guarantees a superior signal to noise ratio, resulting in a more accurate tracking and a cleaner identification of the detected heavy ions. The new detector has been tested by using a 18O beam at an energy of 84 MeV. A description of the new FPD that pinpoints the innovation and the obtained performances is given and discussed in details.
