Abstract
The characteristics of a segmented clover germanium detector have been stud ied using a fusion-evaporation reaction (Al-27 + Si-28) at 100 MeV bombardi ng energy at three different distances (11, 15 and 22 cm) from the target. The gamma transitions, which have been used for these studies, are emitted by the nuclei Cr-51 and Ti-46 populated at medium spin states by the Al-27( Si-28, 3pn) and Al-27(Si-28, 2 alpha pn) channels, respectively. The analys es have been performed, firstly by considering this detector as "classical" (without segmentation) and, secondly by using the information of hit segme nts. The comparison gives a measurement of the segmentation effect on the r esolution in energy which can be achieved in such a type of fusion-evaporat ion reactions. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
