Only a few charge preamplifiers suitable for use with Large Area Silicon Detectors have been realised as integrated circuits. In this paper we presents some of them that includes in the same chip both a charge preamplifier and a shaper, dramatically cutting power dissipation, size and cost. The resolution achieved is very good. It is intended in particular for use in Intermediate Energy Physics Experiments. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Decay spectroscopy is one of the oldest indirect methods in nuclear astrophysics. We have developed at TAMU techniques to measure beta- and beta-delayed proton decay of sd-shell, proton-rich nuclei. The short-lived radioactive species are produced in-flight, separated, then slowed down (from...

    Alpha particle spectrometry is a powerful analytical tool for nuclear forensics and environmental monitoring. Microcalorimeter detectors have been shown to yield nearly an order of magnitude better energy resolution (1.06 keV FWHM at 5.3 MeV) than current state-of-the-art silicon detectors (8-10...

    Double Sided Silicon Strip Detectors (DSSSDs) are often used in nuclear physics experiments in a wide energy range. According to the previous experiments, when a particle hits the interstrip region of these detectors, different effects may occur. Charge sharing, pulse height deficits and inverse...
