The Commissioning of the Notre-Dame Cube Active-Target Detector

Published: February 2022 Ahn

Lead Author(s): J.S. Randhawa, T. Ahn

The Notre-Dame Cube (ND-Cube) is an active-target time-projection chamber that was designed for studies in nuclear structure and astrophysics through the imaging of charged-particle tracks. The use of the ND-Cube’s tracking medium as a target offers the advantages of a thick target for higher reaction yields, high geometrical efficiency, and low energy thresholds for detecting outgoing particles. The ND-Cube will expand the possibilities for experiments at Notre Dame’s Nuclear Science Lab. Learn more
