A study of the response of three Δ EE telescopes to fragments produced in nuclear interactions at 40 AMeV is presented. All the employed telescopes feature silicon carbide (SiC) detectors for at least one detection stage. Two identification methods have been used and their performance discussed: the Δ EE technique and the Pulse Shape Analysis technique (for identification of nuclear fragments stopped in a single SiC layer). Identification capabilities similar to those obtained with the best available silicon detectors have been found for the SiC detector prototypes studied in this work.
