The international FAZIA (Four π A and Z Identification Array) Collaboration, presently involving researchers and institutions from France, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, India, Canada and USA, is currently investigating the use of new detector types/configurations (nTD Si detectors, single chip telescope) and new electronics (charge/current preamplifiers, digital sampling and signal processing) in view of defining a next-generation detection array with improved particle identification capability to study nuclear reaction dynamics and thermodynamics exploiting the Radioactive Nuclear Beam (RNB) facilities. The present main R&D activities inside the Collaboration are brielfly described.
