136Xe, 124Xe and 124Sn at 15 MeV/nucleon

P. Cammarata used the K500 Super-Conducting Cyclotron at Texas A&M University Cyclotron Institute was used to produce beams of 136Xe, 124Xe and 124Sn at 15 MeV/nucleon. The 136Xe and 124Sn beams were collided on a self supporting 64Ni target and the 124Xe beam was collided on a self supporting 58Ni target. Additionally, the K500 Cyclotron also produced three calibration beams which were collided on gold targets (197Au). The FAUST array was chosen for its good isotopic and elemental resolution, forward angular coverage and reasonable angular granularity. In the lab, we were able to achieve a time resolution of up to ∼150 ps full-width half-max (FWHM)
