The PARIS project is ail initiative to develop and build a high-efficiency gamma-calorimeter principally for Use at SPIRAL2. It is intended to comprise a double shell of scintillators and use the novel scintillator material LaBr3(Ce), which promises a step-change in energy and time resolutions over what is achievable using conventional scintillators. The array could be used in a stand-alone mode, in conjunction with an inner particle detection system, or with high-purity germanium arrays. Its potential physics opportunities as well as initial designs and simulations will be discussed.
