The European gamma-ray tracking detector, AGATA, will be an instrument of major importance for nuclear structure studies at the limits of nuclear stability, capable of measuring gamma-radiation in a very large energy range (from a few tens of keV up to 10 MeV and more), with the largest possible efficiency and with a very good spectral response. Its sensitivity for selecting the weakest signals from exotic nuclear events will be up to 2-3 orders of magnitude greater than for all current γ-ray spectrometers. The AGATA R&D project is supported by the EU via the European research network EURONS in the 6th framework programme. The current goal of the AGATA project is to construct a demonstrator that shall prove the gamma-ray tracking concept in real conditions and which will be commissioned during 2007. The demonstrator will consist of one symmetric and three asymmetric triple-cluster modules comprising in total 18 36-fold segmented high-purity germanium crystals. Sweden is contributing one of the asymmetric triple-cluster modules, funded by the Swedish Research Council and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. See also the project on development of gamma-ray detectors.
