    • Abstract

       

      We shall discuss about the scientific motivation and construction of a 7×7 BaF2 crystal array at Variable Energy Cyclotron Centre, Calcutta. This detector would be used to measure high energy γ-ray photons from GDR decay and proton-neutron bremsstrahlung reactions at the present 88″ cyclotron and upcoming superconducting cyclotron at VECC, Calcutta. This detector can also be used to measure photons from quark-gluon plasma at the relativistic heavy ion collider (RHIC) in USA.
