Time-of-flight isochronous (TOFI) spectrometer for direct mass measurements of exotic light nuclei

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

TOFI is a new spectrometer being constructed at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility (LAMPF) for the expressed purpose of making direct mass measurements of low Z neutron-righ nuclei produced in proton-induced fragmentation reactions of uranium. The design of TOFI will permit systematic mass measurements for a wide range of neutron-rich nuclei below A=70 with accuracies of 30 keV to 1 MeV depending on production rates. The resulting large set of data will enable reevaluations of the various mass theories and nuclear structure investigations as well as provide a base from which to reconform previous mass measurements. This paper will ... continued below

The design of TOFI will permit systematic mass measurements for a wide range of neutron-rich nuclei below A=70 with accuracies of 30 keV to 1 MeV depending on production rates. The resulting large set of data will enable reevaluations of the various mass theories and nuclear structure investigations as well as provide a base from which to reconform previous mass measurements. This paper will present a brief review of the nuclear physics interests in the low Z neutron-rich region as well as a description of the TOFI spectrometer now under construction.
