The WASA 4π detector at the The Svedberg Laboratory in Uppsala is now being commissioned. This detector will make possible new detailed studies of many interesting rare processes in intermediate energy light-ion physics. WASA is built around a new target system, providing well defined internal hydrogen (and deuterium) targets of high density. It has a detection coverage of close to 4π sr for high energy photons and charged particles and it includes a strong magnetic field provided by an extremely thin-walled superconducting solenoid. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    X-ray cargo inspection systems typically use a several-MV pulsed linear accelerator (linac) to produce a bremsstrahlung spectrum of x rays by bombarding a target with electrons. The x rays traverse the cargo and are detected by a detector array. Spectroscopy of the detected x rays is very...

    Spectroscopy in the region of high masses is performed at the limits of the existing detection systems. Observation limits were recently pushed down to 11 nb with the prompt gamma-ray spectroscopy of 246Fm and 256Rf. The very high intensity beams that will be provided by the new SPIRAL2 LINAC...

    The bremsstrahlung x-ray spectrum used in high-energy, high-intensity x-ray cargo inspection systems is attenuated and modified by the materials in the cargo in a Z-dependent way. Therefore, spectroscopy of the detected x rays yields information about the Z of the x-rayed cargo material. It has...
