NIMROD is a 4π neutron and charged particle detection system. It is used to select collisions according to their violence. Dynamic and thermodynamic information is derived from the observed multiplicities, energies and angular distributions of particles and fragments produced in the nuclear reaction.
Neutrons are detected using liquid scintillator which is contained in vessels around the target. Charged particles are detected using 96 charged particle detection modules which consist of a gas ionization chamber, one or two silicon detectors and one or two CsI detectors.
