Introduction to EXOGAM

EXOGAM - The EXOtic GAMma-ray spectrometer is a an array of 16 High Purity Germanium detectors designed to provide the maximum possible detection efficiency for experiments utilising radioactive ion beams.

The EXOGAM project is a European collaboration with capital funding provided by research councils in France, the UK, Finland and Sweden.

The picture (right) shows a picture of the EXOGAM array with two Escape Suppressed Clover detectors mounted in the EXOGAM frame. The NBI target chamber is also visible. The design of the frame and the suppression shields allow the detectors to be mounted at three different detector to target distances, allowing the spectrum quality to be optimised for different experimental conditions.
