Measuring the most challenging decays with the Argonne Fragment Mass Analyser (FMA)

Wednesday 20 February 2019, 11.00AM

Speaker(s): Daniel Doherty, University of Surrey

The Fragment Mass Analyser (FMA) at located at the ATLAS accelerator at Argonne National Laboratory has been a work horse of the lab for decades and used to wide variety of experiments. However, in recent years, upgrades to the FMA and crucially an upgrade from an analogue to fully-digital DAQ have hitherto made experiments looking for the fastest particle decays possible.
