      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      A motor driven plunger has been constructed for measuring lifetimes of nuclear excited states in pico second region. An array consisting of six neutron detectors was used to clean up γ-spectra obtained with CS-HPGe detectors. Lifetimes of low excited states in neutron deficient nuclei with low production cross-section e.g.81Y,77Kr and78Rb are reported.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Recently, a digital data acquisition system with 96 channels has been set up for the Indian National Gamma Array (INGA) consisting of 24 Compton-suppressed clover detectors. The digital system provides higher throughput, better energy resolution and better stability for the multidetector Compton-suppressed clover array compared to the previous conventional system with analog shaping. A number of nuclear spectroscopic experiments have been carried out using the array. Selected results from this array will be presented which highlight different excitations of nuclei near-shell gaps.

      An experimental campaign aimed at studying various high spin phenomena using the Indian National Gamma Array (INGA) at the BARC–TIFR Pelletron Linac Facility has been successfully completed. The array consisting of a large number of Compton-suppressed clover detectors was coupled to a digital data acquisition system with 96 channels. The present system provides higher throughput, better energy resolution and better stability of gain for the multidetector Compton-suppressed clover array compared to its previous conventional system with analog shaping. Selected results from this array are discussed which highlight the exotic shapes, novel excitation modes and interesting isomers of the nuclei. The preliminary results from the experimental efforts to improve the sensitivity and capability of the array by adding ancillary detectors are also described briefly.

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The time-stamp structure of the digital data acquisition system of the Indian National Gamma Array (INGA) has been utilized to carry out prompt-delayed coincidence technique for the spectroscopic study of fission fragments. This technique was found to be useful to determine the states above the long-lived isomer (with half-life up to $\sim$5 𝜇s), present in the fission fragments. The angular correlation of 𝛾-rays, emitted by the fission fragments, has also been used in the present INGA geometry to determine the spins of the de-exciting states.
