Abstract
Sixteen triple telescopes were developed to be used in the study of light h eavy-ion nuclear reactions at the University of Sao Paulo Pelletron Laborat ory, with the purpose of providing simultaneous identification of light and heavy reaction products. Each telescope consists of one ionization chamber , one Si detector and one CsI detector with photodiode readout. The telesco pes are encapsulated in such a way that they can be utilized in different s etup geometries depending on the kind of experiment being performed. Result s for the ionization chambers energy loss resolution, Si and CsI detectors energy resolution and general performance are presented. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
