In present in-beam gamma-ray experiments with high-resolution Ge-spectrometers at intermediate energies, the lifetime of excited states can be obtained employing a plunger and the recoil distance Doppler shift method. For next-generation Ge-spectrometer such as AGATA or GRETINA, the increased energy resolution permits a detailed study of the observed lineshapes depending on the lifetime of an excited state. In my talk I will demonstrate that the envisaged energy resolution of the SHOGUN spectrometer of three percent is sufficient for many cases to be sensitive for lifetime measurements.
