Abstract [en]

We describe a device to study reactions relevant for the Single Event Effect (SEE) in microelectronics by means of 200 A and 300 A MeV, inverse kinematics, Si+H and Si+D reactions. The work is focused on the possibility to measure Z=2–14 projectile fragments as efficiently as possible. During commissioning and first experiments the fourth quadrant of the CELSIUS storage ring acted as a spectrometer to register fragments in two planes of Si strip detectors in the angular region 0–0.6. A combination of ring-structured and sector-structured Si strip detector planes operated at angles 0.6–1.1. For specific event tagging a Si+ phoswich scintillator wall operated in the range 3.9–11.7 and Si ΔEE telescopes of CHICSi type operated at large angles.

Abstract [en]

The heaviest fragments, recoils, have been studied in proton and deuteron induced 28Si reactions and proton-20Ne reactions at 100-300 MeV per nucleon. Inclusive charge and angular distributions and coincidences between He nuclei and recoils have been compared to two theoretical models, Dubna Cascade Model and JAERI Quantum Molecular Dynamics. The overall agreement was good for the reactions with 28Si, however the angular distributions of He fragments could not be reproduced.

For the 20Ne reactions the recoil angular distributions were only reproduced for large angles. There was a significant underestimation at small angles and low recoil charge. α-clustering in the bombarding nucleus is a possible explanation for the deviations. In the 100 MeV per nucleon reactions all assumptions of the models may not be valid and the agreement was worst for these reactions.

In proton-natXe reactions intermediate mass fragments have been studied from 200 to 1400 MeV. Slow ramping was used to scan the energy. Charge distributions and a caloric curve have been compared to Cascade Fragmentation Evaporation Model. Charge distributions showed good agreement for fragments with Z<8 but the heavier fragments were underestimated.
