Development of a HPGe-BGO Pair Spectrometer for ELI-NP — •Ilja Homm and Thorsten Kröll — Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany
The new European research facility called ELI-NP (The Extreme Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics) is being built in Bucharest-Magurele, Romania. ELI-NP will offer unprecedented opportunities for photonuclear reactions with high intensity, brilliant and fully polarized photon beams at energies up to 19.5 MeV.
The 8 HPGe CLOVER detectors of ELIADE are important instruments for the gamma spectroscopic study of photonuclear reactions. We investigate the possibility to operate an advanced version of an anti-Compton shield (AC shield) as escape γ-rays pair spectrometer for one of the ELIADE CLOVERS. This should improve the performance at high energies where the pair production process dominates. The BGO shield operated as a stand-alone device can also be used as intensity monitor and to investigate the cross section for pair production near the threshold.
The main tasks are to develop and test such an AC shield consisting of BGO crystals with SiPM (silicon photomultiplier) readout. The results of prototype testing are reported. First measurements with high energy photons are planned for 2020.
