A Bragg detector with a Frisch grid and 1 metre-long time-of-ﬂight section with microchannel plate assemblies was characterized at the Lohengrin ﬁssion fragment separator at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) by measuring 235U ﬁssion fragments of selected masses and energiesat the Lohengrinfocal plane. The aim of the measurementswas to investigate the response of Bragg detectors to diﬀering nuclear charge states. Energy-loss and a signal-risetime dependent parameters were deﬁned and extracted from the accumulated signal pulse shapes, and their behaviouras a function of fragment velocitywas investigated. The experimentalresults are compared to a SRIM-2013 simulation. Measurements of ﬁssion fragment ranges in isobutane are presented. Average proton numbers for measured fragment masses were identiﬁed and could be resolved by the parameters, which exhibited monotonic variation with charge. The results diﬀered from SRIM both in trends and in values, with SRIM simulations exhibiting non-monotonic behaviour with protonnumber.
