Geant4-aided Quantum State Selective Decay Spectroscopy of 213Ra

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


Utilizing the excellent mass resolving power of SHIPTRAP and the charged-particle-g multicoincidence setup TASISpec, the decay path of the 213Ra ground state can be exclusively studied. Based on virtual experiments with Geant4 it is possible to refine the a-branching ratios of the 213Ra ground state as well as g-ray branching ratios in the 209Rn daughter. The present study provides a proof of concept where clean quantum-state selective particle-g decay spectroscopy is used in conjunction with detailed Geant4 Monte-Carlo simulations to gain insight into nuclear structure properties.
