β decay of26Ne

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A pure neutron-rich 26Ne beam was obtained at the ISOLDE facility using isobaric selectivity. This was achieved by a combination of a plasma ion source with a cooled transfer line and subsequent mass separation. The high quality of the beam and good statistics allowed us to obtain new experimental information on the 26Ne β-decay properties and resolve a contradiction between earlier experimental data and prediction of shell-model calculations.
