Status of the FAZIASYM experiment

by E. Bonnet - published on

In this proceeding, status of the FAZIASYM experiment is reported. This FAZIASYM experiment was performed at the LNS cyclotron using four blocks of the future FAZIA apparatus. The goal of this experiment is to measure the absolute cross section of projectile like fragments produced in the 40,48Ca + 40,48Ca binary dissipative reactions at a beam energy of 35 MeV/A. The second step is to trace back isospin effect on fragment isotopic distributions in order to extract information on the symmetry energy near the saturation density. Identification in mass and charge of fragments is almost complete and calibration of the different detection layers is ongoing. First results show the very promising capabilities of the FAZIA telescope.
