Measurements of the angular correlation function W(θ) were performed with the iThemba LABS segmented clover detector. A set of measurements with radioactive sources and irradiated targets was carried out to check the performance of the detector. At short detector-to-source distance, the detector covers the whole range of angles needed for precise angular correlation measurements. Preliminary results show that our detector can measure precisely angular correlation functions, including for transitions with large multipole order such as E3, M4, E4, etc., and deliver mixing ratios δ of mixed magnetic and electric nature.
