2 Coupling ORRUBA and GRETINA Steven D. Pain Oak Ridge National Laboratory GRETINA Workshop, ANL, February 2013 ORRUBA Coupling with GS Coupling with GRETINA Instrumentation

3 Oak Ridge Rutgers University Barrel Array Barrel array of ion-implanted silicon strip detectors Custom resistive design used to achieve good position resolution (~1mm) without requiring 1000s of electronics channels 2 rings –  < 90°: 12 telescopes (1000  m R + 65  m NR) –  > 90°: 12 detectors (500  m R) ORRUBA gives ~80%  coverage over  = 45° → 135° 288 electronics channels

5 GODDESS G ammasphere O RRUBA: D ual D etectors for E xperimental S tructure S tudies

6 GODDESS New end-cap detectors under design 1 deg (polar) resolution over most angles 15 to 165 degree coverage (>75%) Polar angle coverage

7 GODDESS Channel Count Total preamplifers = 720 ch (complete coverage requires 616 ch) One ring 1-layer (132 ch) One ring telescopes (220 ch) Endcap 1 layer (128 ch) Endcap 3-stack ( ch) Backward hemisphere = 260 ch Forward hemisphere = ch

11 Instrumentation FMA Focal Plane DSSD electronics 320 channels ORNL electronics ~300 channels Backward hemisphere = 260 ch Forward hemisphere = ch Complete coverage = 616 ch and up Conventional instrumentation FMA Focal Plane DSSD electronics 320 digitizers + GRETINA aux channels? + DGS? Digital instrumentation

12 > 5 feet Pre-amplifiers mounted on top of “chimney” Required some 6 feet of signal cable before any amplification Ineffective shielding between feed-through and preamplifiers Led to resolution degradation over usual performance (~ 30% effect) November 2011 – ANL tests

13 Signals run the length of the FMA (2 x 25 ft cables) Instrumented with RAL shaping amplifiers, and CAMAC ADCs of Darek Sewerniak Digital Analog Data also taken with Darek’s GRETINA digitizers (14 bit, 100 MHz) 228 Th source for calibration of the ORRUBA detectors, and 249 Cf was used to perform an  -  coincidence measurement

14 Instrumenting Resistive Strips 0.5  s1.0  s1.5  s Energy and position filters?

15 ORRUBA fits within GRETINA chamber Coupling with Gammasphere underway –Hardware built –New end-cap detectors Most of GODDESS setup could be equally used with GRETINA –In standalone mode, or if there was sufficient distance to the FMA quad –Radial alternatives possible (would require more hardware fabrication, and longer un-amplified signal cables) Combination of ORRUBA and GRETINA could give excellent (few keV) energy resolution Both conventional ADC or digitized readout of ORRUBA are options –Sufficient conventional channels exist –Performance benefits to using digitizersSummary

16 Acknowledgements Callum Shand keeping out of the Texas heat Steven Hardy – proud of his detector mounts Andrew Ratkiewicz – not entirely convinced by the dinosaurs at the creation museum Thanks also to the UTK machine shop, Darek Sewerniak, Mike Carpenter, Shaofei Zhu and Kim Lister….
