Description

The TUDA facility (TRIUMF UK Detector Array) consists of a silicon strip array for the study of charged particle reactions of astrophysical interest in inverse kinematics. TUDA addresses the challenges presented by investigating such reactions, using both direct and indirect techniques. In particular, the low energies and low cross sections involved require the use of highly segemented, large solid angle detectors with excellent energy and timing resolution. TUDA is designed to be highly versatile and the experimental configuration can be optimised to the requirements of each individual measurement. An overview of TUDA will be presented together with experimental results and a discussion of the future programme.
