We have developed a fragment detection system for use in studies of exotic, neutron-rich nuclei. Using a C-shaped dipole magnet, the system sweeps charged fragments and un-reacted beam particles through an angle before stopping them in an array of plastic scintillator detectors, recording time-of-flight and total energy. The system also includes a pair of silicon strip detectors to measure fragment angle of emergence from the target and energy loss for particle identification. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
