Status of the AGATA Project and profile of the Spanish contribution A. Gadea IFIC, CSIC-Univ. Valencia (AGATA Project Manager) 180 Ge crystals, 6660 high-resolution digital channels, PSA + tracking Probably the most challenging project in the Nuclear Structure community Unique in Europe, Physics driven /3 already measuring For the EUROPEAN RIB facilities NUSTAR, SPIRAL2, SPES, … TDR ready since 2008 (after R&D phase), part of NUSTAR/FAIR project
PSA code and TRACKING: working! experiments not been limited. Presently segments treated as with one interaction. Space for improvement : the main factors is the detector response Characterization and new data bases required Scanning table newly design based in F.Crespi (INFN-Milano) work. Detector Module, PSA and Tracking corrected SG r=15 mm July 2010 Contribution of LRI – Uni. Salamanca and supported from IFIC Investment in a test cryostat (UAM) knowledge on installation of capsules in a cryostat will be transferred The Highly Segmented Ge-detector: developed by Canberra-France for AGATA. Encapsulation technique from EUROBALL The Cryostat technology know-how and detector characterization techniques: open knowlege for all the collaboration

Experience and activity of the group Experience working and building large Ge Arrays as GASP, EUROBALL, CLARA, AGATA … We have Participated in the R&D, the conceptual design and building of AGATA. C. Domingo-Pardo has worked on the AGATA concept for the PRESPEC (NUSTAR precursor), with large impact in AGATA. EUROBALL AGATA AGATA at PRESPEC inner ring CLARA@LNL Record experience on Nuclear Strucuture data taking and analysis spokespersons on more than 10 proposals for 2011-2013. Record on Nuclear structure results: curriculum of the group ~330 publications including 15 PRL and 1 Nature, sum of citations >3000. Experience on managing technological and research projects: A. Gadea has been Project Manager or responsible of several instrumental developments: CLARA, DANTE, AGATA Demonstrator, AGATA The ETSE-UV group will give effective support on the design, construction and firmware production of parts of AGATA and complementary instrumentation FEE. The e-Science GRID-CSIC IFIC group is supporting the implementation of the AGATA data analysis on GRID.
Outcome of recent Projects FPA2008-06419 goals within our responsibility: R&D on DESPEC/NUSTAR HR array for decay -ray spectroscopy at NUSTAR: R&D on using AGATA for DESPEC (B.Quintana) R&D on improving the imaging capabilities of AGATA by coupling with Ge DSSD detectors. Setup and maintenance of AGATA-PRISMA at INFN-LNL Contribution to AGATA (1 capsule) + Scanning table Experimental activity with AGATA and other Large Ge arrays AGATA-PRISMA (10.30 Sp., 10.20 + others), Rising (S337 Sp., S350, S361) and complementary research at GANIL-EXOGAM, (E451a Sp.)
