The competitive double γ-decay (γγ/γ) is a strongly suppressed second order decay process in nuclear physics. Its first observation in the nucleus 137Ba  was performed using five LaBr3:Ce scintillation detectors in a star-shaped configuration which severely limits the measurement of angular correlations between emitted γ rays. Using the Advanced GAmma Tracking Array AGATA, a detailed resolution of angular correlations could be possible. However, due the limited time resolution of AGATA’s high-purity germanium detectors, the experimental analysis has to fully rely on γ-ray tracking methods.
Based on a Geant4 simulation, a technical feasibility study of γγ/γ experiments with AGATA using 137Ba as an example case is presented. The impact of AGATA’s metrological restraints is emphasized.
