 ===== Object Station ===== ===== Object Station =====
-The object station contains a [[Detectors#​Plastic Scintillators|plastic scintillator]] for time-of-flight measurements. This detector is usually left in the beam during experiments and can withstand rates up to 1 MHz. A large surface (5 cm × 5 cm) PIN 0.3 mm silicon detector is also installed in the this box and serves to measure the energy loss of the beam particles. This detector is intended to check the composition of the incoming radioactive beam and is not meant to stay in the beam during data accumulation. The rate is limited to 1 kHz. A remotely retractable "​viewer"​ sheet is installed in the chamber to be used during tuning of the A1900 to the [[Stations#​Target Station|pivot point]] of the S800. A picture of the object-station box, located on the western side of the middle level of the S3 vault, is shown below.+The object station contains a [[Detectors#​Plastic Scintillators|plastic scintillator]] for time-of-flight measurements.

-The S800 focal plane station chamber is located on the top level of the S3 vault, following the second dipole of the spectrograph (see picture below). The chamber is equipped with various detectors including two position sensitive [[Detectors#​Cathode Readout Drift Chambers (CRDC)|Cathode Readout Drift Chambers (CRDCs)]] for tracking the trajectories of the particles, a [[Detectors#​Ionization Chamber|ionization chamber]] for the measurement of energy loss, a [[Detectors#​Plastic Scintillators|timing scintillator E1]], and an [[Detectors#​Hodoscope|Hodoscope]] for total kinetic energy ​measurements.+The S800 focal plane station chamber is located on the top level of the [[S3 vault]], following the second dipole of the spectrograph (see picture below).
