Etude de la radioactivité deux-protons de 67Kr et développement d’une chambre à projection temporelle

Abstract : Two-proton radioactivity is a decay mode of proton-rich nuclei located beyond the proton nuclear existence limit (drip line). Predicted in the 1960s, this process was observed for the first time in 2002 in the 45Fe decay study. Only four two-proton emitters were known so far: 45Fe, 48Ni, 54Zn and 19Mg. A search for new emitters was performed with the EURICA- WAS3ABi setup at the RIKEN Nishina center in 2015. The decay of 59Ge, 63Se, 67Kr and 68Kr was observed for the first time. Two-proton radioactivity of 67Kr together with the beta and delayed proton decay of exotic nuclei in the region were studied. A time projection chamber (TPC) developed at the CENBG (2004-2011) enabled the study of the correlations between the protons for 45Fe and 54Zn. A second generation of TPC is under construction within the ACTAR TPC (ACtive TARget for TPC) collaboration. This detector enables a reconstruction in three dimensions of the energy deposited in the active volume which allows a more efficient reconstruction of the tracks as compared to the previous TPC. The generic electronics GET (General Electronics for TPCs) manages the processing and acquisition of the signals. The characterisation of the GET electronics and the TPC demonstrator at CENBG is devoted to the second aspect of this PhD work.
