Abstract

A detection system has been developed for experiments with radioactive beams which have considerable contamination from a stable isobar. The system uses the gas-filled magnet technique and identifies reaction products according to nuclear charge and mass with good resolution even at energies below 1 MeV/u. In a first experiment the device has been used to measure cross sections for the 18F(p, α)15O reaction in the energy range between 650 and 840 keV/u.
