Title Characterization of the Ionization Chamber for the SPIDER Detector, Experiment Proposal.
Publication Date Nov 2013

Abstract We request 3 days of ATLAS beams for testing the ionization chamber component of the SPIDER detector, a spectrometer for measuring the mass yields of neutron-induced fission fragments. The ionization chamber will be a stand alone detector to be coupled to the end of the beam pipe at zero degrees. These tests are a mass and energy specific characterization of the ionization chamber operating conditions specific to SPIDER, including entrance window material options. Once tested, the results will be applied to the energy cal- ibration process of SPIDER, a crucial step to achieving high mass resolution.
