Title: RESONEUT: A detector system for spectroscopy with (d,n) reactions in inverse kinematics

Abstract

The resoneut detector setup is described, which was developed for resonance spectroscopy using (d,n) reactions with radioactive beams in inverse kinematics at energies around the Coulomb barrier. The purpose of this setup is to enable experiments on the spectroscopy of low-lying resonances with an impact on astrophysical reaction rates. The setup is optimized for l = 0 proton transfers, for which most neutrons are emitted with energies in the 80-300 keV range for beam energies of 4-5 MeV/u. The detector system is comprised of 12 p-terphenyl scintillators as neutron detectors, two annular silicon-strip detectors for light charged particles, one position-resolving gas ionization chamber for heavy ion detection, and a barrel of NaI-detectors for the detection of γ-rays. Here, the detector commissioning and performance characteristics are described with an emphasis on the neutron-detector components.
