    Abstract

    A spectrometer for prompt mass identification of fragments from low-energy fission having a large effective solid angle of 35.2 msr is described. The mass identification is obtained by time-of-flight measurement using a pair of microchannel plate detectors and kinetic energy measurement using an axial ionization chamber. A mass resolution of 3.8 u at 100 u was obtained from experiments which observed coincidences between fragments and γ rays from a 252Cf spontaneous fission source. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
