FaNGaS: Fast Neutron Gamma Spectroscopy instrument for prompt gamma signature of inelastic scattering reactions




The FaNGaS instrument has been developed and constructed at the Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH for investigation of neutron inelastic scattering reactions using the fission neutron beam SR10 at the Forschungsneutronenquelle Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II)  operated by the Technische Universität München in Garching. Prompt emitted gamma rays from excited states of irradiated elements can be used for analytical purposes.
