The Array for Nuclear Astrophysics Studies with Exotic Nuclei "ANASEN" is an active-target detector array developed specifically for experiments with radioactive ion beams. ANASEN is a collaborative project between Louisiana State University (LSU) and Florida State University (FSU). ANASEN is a leading detector system for reactions of astrophysical interest at FSU and also in the re-accelerated beam facility REA-3 of the NSCL.
