Abstract

A new 4π (LS) TDCR system was built at ENEA-INMRI. Three photomultiplier tubes, arranged in a planar 120° geometry around a spherical optical chamber, were directly linked to a CAEN Desktop Digitizer DT5720. This module, based on the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology for real time Digital Pulse Processing (DPP), allowed to replace all the classical TDCR electronics by only one device. The activity of 3H and 63Ni standard sources were successfully measured by the new detector. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
