Filter Results

  • Helical Orbit Spectrometer

    The Helical Orbit Spectrometer (HELIOS) is a charged-particle spectrometer designed to study reactions with radioactive ion beams.
  • Gammasphere

    Gammasphere is one of the world’s most powerful spectrometers for nuclear structure research and is especially suited to collecting gamma-ray data following the fusion of heavy ions.

    GRETINA is a new type of gamma-ray spectrometer used to study the structure and properties of atomic nuclei.
  • Fragment Mass Analyzer

    The Fragment Mass Analyzer (FMA) is a recoil mass separator. It separates products of nuclear reactions from unreacted beams and disperses them according to their mass-to-charge state ratio (M/q).
  • Canadian Penning Trap

    The Canadian Penning Trap (CPT) is used to conduct precise mass measurements of nuclides available at the ATLAS facility. By measuring the cyclotron frequency of the ions, a precise determination of the mass can be made.
  • Argonne Gas-Filled Analyzer

    AGFA is a state-of-the-art gas-filled separator at ATLAS, which can be used for studies of heavy and superheavy nuclei as well as to prepare exotic radioactive beams for mass measurements and laser spectroscopy.
