Abstract

A new double-sided silicon strip detector has been developed to study the phenomenon of ground-state proton radioactivity. Highly proton-rich fusion-evaporation reaction products are velocity and mass separated using the Daresbury recoil separator before being implanted into the strip detector located at the separator focal plane. The double-sided strip detector has 48 strips per face with a pitch of 335 Wm. Front and back strips are orthogonal providing an effective pixel area of 0.09 min2, enabling correlations between implanted ions and subsequent decays to be clearly established. Test results obtained using the reactions 58 Ni + 92 Mo 150,n* and 58 Ni +54Fe -,112 Xe* are reported. In the latter commissioning experiment the proton decay of 1(19 1 1(18 was unambiguously established using the correlated decay sequence 1°9 I Te--, 104 Sn.
