Application of Ultra-fast Timing Techniques to the Study of Exotic and Weakly Produced Nuclei

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Ultra-fast time-delayed techniques have been recently applied in a number of studies where exotic nuclei were identified using advanced selection techniques. These include large Compton-suppressed Ge arrays, in-flight separators or recoil separators. Some of the new results are discussed in this presentation. Besides the results for Mg-32 and Pd-96, they include the first determination of the half-life of the 8(+) state in Ge-80, T-1/2 = 2.95(6) ns, and significantly more precise results for Mn-51 (3680 keV level) and V-48 (421 keV level), T-1/2 = 1760(40) ps and T-1/2 <= 135 ps, respectively. Development of new scintillators will steadily improve precision and sensitivity of future measurements.
