We have built an implantation-decay station for β-delayed proton and α decay studies at the focal plane of the Momentum Achromat Recoil Spectrometer (MARS) at the Cyclotron Institute of Texas A&M University. Energetic secondary beams with a small momentum spread are stopped in a controlled manner into a very thin silicon strip detector. In addition, high-purity germanium detectors are installed for γ ray detection. Here we give a description of the setup and the observed performance down to Ep≈200keV using implanted 23Al and 31Cl sources.
