Gas-filled separator for nuclear structure experiments at ATLAS Darek Seweryniak, ANL
Physics HK distributions in heavy nuclei (GS) In-beam spectroscopy of heavy nuclei (GS) Isomers and decays of heavy nuclei (focal plane) Super-heavy searches (focal plane) Fast activities in proton-rich nuclei Gas-cell and traps …
Principle of Operation B i = p/q i B = p/q ave vacuumgas q ave ~ (v/v 0 ) Z 1/3 B ~ A/Z 1/3 [Tm]
Vacuum vs Gas-Filled M/Q measurement physical separation good beam suppression high efficiency short flight path low efficiency long flight path no mass resolution no separation poor beam suppression Truly complementary devices!
