Commissioning of the Daresbury Recoil Separator for nuclear astrophysics measurements at the Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The Daresbury Recoil Separator (DRS) has been installed for nuclear astrophysics research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory`s Holifield Radioactive Ion Beam Facility. it will be used for direct measurements of capture reactions on radioactive ions which occur in stellar explosions such as novae and X-ray bursts. The physics motivation and plans for the first measurements with radioactive beams are described, and details of the new DRS experimental equipment and preliminary results from the first commissioning experiments with stable beams are given.
