The existing Medley setup is being upgraded with Parallel Plate Avalanche Counters (PPACs) to measure neutron-induced fission cross sections. Single-gap PPACs have been developed for that purpose. The time resolution of the PPACs have been measured using a dedicated setup where, either α particles or fission fragments, are detected in coincidence by three PPACs and a Silicon detector. The results reported here demonstrate that the developed PPACs are suitable for the intended measurements in the white neutron beam at the NFS facility at GANIL.
