This team is in charge of development, fabrication, and operation of various detectors used for nuclear physics experiments at RIBF. Our current main mission is maintenance and improvement of detectors which are used at BigRIPS separator and its succeeding beam lines for beam diagnosis and particle identification of RI beams. We are also engaged in R&D of new detectors that can be used for higher-intensity RI beams. In addition, we are doing the R&D which uses the pelletron accelerator together with other groups.
