Prisma is a spectrometer that unites a large solid angle and momentum acceptance with a satisfactory mass resolution. Such a performance is accomplished by "trajectory reconstruction", which requires detecting the entrance and exit X,Y position, time of flight and energy loss. It has been designed for the study of two-body reactions and is actively used together with the clover gamma-array Clara to investigate moderately neutron rich nuclei. This seminar provides an overview of the spectrometer and discuss a few examples of recent experimental results.
