Abstract: The TexAT TPC (TEXas Active Target Time Projection Chamber) is a general-purpose active-target time projection chamber built around Micromegas and GEMs amplification/readout technology. In conjunction with the GET (General Electronics for TPCs) system for data acquisition and triggering, this allows for a variety of experiments at a range of energies employing different reaction mechanisms.

This talk will detail a selection of these experiments, highlighting the versatility of TexAT. It will also discuss a future planned experiment at the Edwards Accelerator Laboratory to measure neutron-induced reactions.
