GANIL Campaign 2015-2021


Here is some brief information about the third AGATA physics campaign, which was run at GANIL in France from 2015 to 2021. During this campaign AGATA was placed in cave G2 upstream of the target position used by VAMOS. Several sub-campaigns were run with different complimentary detectors coupled to AGATA: VAMOS, FATIMA, NEDA/NWall, Diamant, MUGAST, Plungers, etc. At the start of the campaign, AGATA consisted of 24 HPGe crystals. Later during the campaign, experiments were run with 36 to 39 crystals on daily basis. The largest number of crystals mounted in the array during the GANIL campaign was 42 (14 AGATA Triple Cryostats) with 41 actually taking data.
