1 1 ORISS Isomer and Isobar Spectrometer and Separator for Study of Exotic Decays A. Piechaczek for the

2 2 EMIS 2007 UNIRIB Consortium The purpose is to provide a nuclear research facility at ORNL for consortium members Consortium members:

3 3 EMIS 2007 Our Deliverable is Science – Nuclear Physics We do research We give scientific reports at meetings We train students UNIRIB, with ORISE and ORAU, provides a university atmosphere in a national laboratory

4 4 Motivation to build ORISS – Oak Ridge Isomer/Isobar Spectrometer and Separator: Decay studies often possible from yield considerations, but limited by background from isobaric/isomeric contamination Need high resolution separator for background suppression ORISS predicted performance: High mass resolving power, M/M up to 400,000 (FWHM) Almost complete Suppression of neighboring isobar High efficiency ~ 50% Chemistry independent Transportable Cost effective … use Multi-pass Time of Flight principle!

5 5 EMIS 2007 Multi-pass Time-of-Flight system: concept MTOF Spectrometer: Spectrum taken with MCP MTOF Separator: Physical separation using fast electrostatic gate (Bradbury Nielsen gate) ToF = ½ ToF M/M Pulsed ion source MCP detector or electrostatic gate 1st Electrostatic Mirror2nd Electrostatic Mirror Individual electrodes Pulsed entry electrode Pulsed exit electrode

6 6 What you could do with mass resolving power of 400,000: resolve all isobars resolve isomers M/ M < 200,000 (470 A=100) Se As Ge Ga Zn A=77 Se.161 Zn.772 Ge.160 T – T 0 [microseconds]

8 8 Strawman layout of ORISS at UNISOR RF-cooler and buncher RB Ion Source UNISOR mass separator pre-separator ORISS Beta and Gamma ray Detectors Beam diagnostics, electrostatic decelerator

9 9 Applications of ORISS Decay spectroscopy with pure sources for p-rich and n-rich Decay spectroscopy of isomers with sufficient excitation Survey searches for isomers Modular Total Absorption Spectrometer - GT strength functions Future: masses/mass differences Future: RIB injector

10 10 Physics… Regions around 100Sn, 132S, 78Ni Regions around 100 Sn 132 Sn 78 Ni

11 11 Physics application: Decay Heat and spectroscopy for advanced nuclear fuel cycle Many critical measurements can be performed at UNISOR with ORISS All critical measurements can be performed at UNISOR with ORISS and He-Jet ion source Elements available with He-Jet ion source
