HiCARI: High-resolution Cluster Array at RIBF

Remote monitoring (password required)

We are currently developing a germanium-based gamma-ray spectrometer composed of MINIBALL, Super Clover detectors, and several Ge tracking detectors from Japan, South-Korea, Europe, and the USA for experimental fast beam campaigns at the RIBF in 2020.

Further information regarding the array's performance, simulation package, etc. will be posted on this page in due course. For the time being, one can find information regarding the array's envisaged performance in the Construction Proposal and the Letter of Intent below. Also a simulation code is available, which can be downloaded below.
