CALIFA, the R3B CALorimeter for In-Flight emitted pArticles detection

CALIFA is a calorimeter intended for the high-efficiency detection of gammas and light charged particles produced in secondary reactions at the R3B target. A large resolution both in the individual gamma energy as well as the total energy (up to tens of  MeV) is requested. Protons (up to 300 MeV) produced in the target region crossing the crystal bulk should also be detected with good energy resolution.

The main properties of this device, high efficiency and good angular resolution, are imposed by the very particular kinematics of energetic gamma rays emitted by sources moving with relativistic velocities and by the typically low intensities of the secondary beams involved.
