A novel way of doing decay spectroscopy at a radioactive ion beam facility
A technique to enhance the purity of accelerated radioactive ion beams for decay studies is presented. The technique requires a 3MeV/nucleon beam and a transmission ionization chamber. The gas pressure in the multi-anode ionization chamber is adjusted so that high-Z components of the beam are ranged out in the gas transmitting the more exotic, low-Z components to the measuring station. Initial tests with a radioactive 120Ag and 120In mixed beam indicate at least a factor of 5 relative enhancement of the 120Ag decay transitions. © Società Italiana di Fisica / Springer-Verlag 2005.
