At the PF1B cold neutron beam line at the Institut Laue Langevin, the EXILL array consisting of EXOGAM, GASP and ILL-Clover detectors was used to perform (n,gamma) measurements at very high coincidence rates. About ten different reactions were measured in autumn 2012 using a highly collimated cold neutron beam. In spring 2013, the EXOGAM array was combined with 16 LaBr3(Ce) scintillators in the EXILL&FATIMA campaign for the measurement of lifetimes using the generalised centroid difference method. We report on the properties of the set-ups and present first results from both campaigns.

This work was supported by NUPNET by contract 05P12PKNUF, 05P12RDNUP and DNC7RP01/4, by the Science and Technology Facilities Councils (UK), by the Spanish MINECO via the FPA2010-17142 and PRIPIMNUP-2011-1338 projects, and by the DFG by cluster of Excellence Origin and Structure of the Universe, grant KR 1796/2-1 and SFB634. This material is based in part upon work supported by the U.S.D.O.E., SC, Office of nuclear physics, under Award No. DE-FG02-91ER40609. The EXILL campaign would not have been possible without the support of several services at the ILL and the LPSC. We are grateful to the EXOGAM collaboration for the loan of the detectors, to GANIL for assistance during installation and dismantling, to the INFN Legnaro laboratory for the loan of the GASP detectors and to the FATIMA collaboration for the use of the LaBr3(Ce) scintillators.
