Developing the recoil-in-vacuum technique for magnetic moment measurements on fission fragments and radioactive beams

Leslie, Russell


This thesis reports on work to develop and refine the recoil in vacuum (RIV) technique as a method to measure the g factors for picosecond lifetime excited nuclear states. The challenge has been to calibrate the hyperfine interactions of free ions moving in vacuum, so that their influence on the angular correlations of the radiation de-exciting the nuclear state can be interpreted to extract its magnetic moments. The RIV interaction was characterised, calibrated and modelled on stable...[Show more]
