PASPAG is a Joint Research Activity within ENSAR2 project. PASPAG aims to improve infrastructure for European Large Scale Facilities to make best use of the high investment in delivering radioactive ion beams. Efficient gamma-ray and charged-particle detection are key tools for experimental nuclear physics. Future nuclear physics facilities will make strong demands on the capability and performance of such detector systems.
PASPAG aims for Simultaneous detection of Gamma and Particle Radiation by the use of new scintillator materials combined with the phoswich technique.
In this presentation we will discuss the achievements of the project so far and concentrate the discussion to the R&D leading to societal applications, especially in relation to detection systems for homeland security.
