Construction and commissioning of the SuperORRUBA detector
The SuperORRUBA (Oak Ridge Rutgers University Barrel Array) of double-sided silicon strip detectors has been constructed at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The array will primarily be used to study single-nucleon transfer reactions in inverse kinematics at exotic beam facilities. The detector exhibits good intrinsic energy resolution (∼25keV) and large solid-angle coverage over the polar angular range 55-125°. The detector is now in routine use and has been used for several measurements at the HRIBF. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
