    AGATA - Advanced Gamma-ray Tracking Array


    AGATA is a large European detector collaboration involving around 40 research laboratories and universities from 12 countries. The goal is to construct and maintain the first complete 4π-solid angle γ-ray spectrometer built entirely from high-purity and electrically segmented germanium detectors. AGATA represents a revolutionary approach to γ-ray spectroscopy and offers unique opportunities to study the fundamental aspects of nuclear many-body systems and in particular the nuclear structure of rare, short-lived nuclei. These are not found in Nature, except in the most extreme stellar environments, like supernovae or colliding neutron stars, where various nucleosynthesis processes are in action. The detector technology behind AGATA allows also for unprecedented γ-ray imaging capabilities in applied nuclear science.
