A particle identification technique has been developed combining the use of a position-sensitive silicon detector with a simple magnetic system. Measurements of time of flight, energy loss, total energy, and magnetic rigidity provided the determination of the atomic number, the charge state, and the mass of produced fragments. The resultant resolutions were ΔA = 0.34 (FWHM) for mass number A = 40 and ΔZ = 0.24 (FWHM) for atomic number Z = 20.
