Detector Types

This page describes all detector types that are possible to use in the current analysis. These are the only detector types that are valid for use in the map.txt file.

dssd_front

This detector type is used for the front of the DSSD. The front and back of the DSSD must be kept separate to indepently determine the strip with the maximum energy for front and back. Available sub types include:

dssd_back

This detector type is used for the back of the DSSD. Available sub types include:

ge

This detector type is used for all germanium detectors. The clover detectors are the furthest developed at present. Available sub types include:

si

This detector type is for all silicon detectors that are not a DSSD. This type should be used for the silicon box. No sub types for this type yet.

mcp

This detector type is for all mcp detectors. Available sub types include:

timeclass

This detector type is for timing detectors such as TACs and MTCs. Available sub types include

scint

This detector type is for scintillator detectors and could be used for NaI, beta scintillators, ... Available sub types include:

idssd_front

This detector type is for the front of the dssd for implants only. This type is intended for use in fragmentation experiments where the implant and decay signals use two separate electronics chains. Available sub types include:

position

This detector type is for a position signal at a fragmentation experiment. This type is intended for correcting a time-of-flight signal based on the position signal at an intermediate focus. Available sub types include:
