Performance of HAGRID array in beta delayed neutron emission measurements

One of the most prevalent decay modes of unstable nuclei is β[beta] decay. For nuclei far from stability these decays can be followed by the emission of a neutron. The Versatile Array of Neutron

Segmented YSO scintillation detectors as a new β-implant detection tool for decay spectroscopy in fragmentation facilities

Measuring the β-decay Properties of Neutron-rich Exotic Pm, Sm, Eu, and Gd Isotopes to Constrain the Nucleosynthesis Yields in the Rare-earth Region

The β-delayed neutron-emission probabilities of 28 exotic neutron-rich isotopes of Pm, Sm, Eu, and Gd were measured for the first time at RIKEN Nishina Center using the Advanced Implantation Detector

BRIKEN measurements of half-lives for Ce to Nd nuclei relevant for the formation of the r-process rare-earth peak (A~160)

The Rare Earth Peak (REP) is a small, but clearly distinctive, peak around mass A 160 in the elemental solar system abundances created by the rapid neutron-capture process (rprocess). Understanding

Observation of a μs isomer in In8549134 : Proton-neutron coupling “southeast” of Sn8250132

We report on the observation of a microsecond isomeric state in the single-proton-hole, three-neutron-particlenucleus134In. The nuclei of interest were produced by in-flight fission of a238U beam at

β -decay half-lives and β -delayed neutron emission probabilities for several isotopes of Au, Hg, Tl, Pb, and Bi, beyond N=126

Background: Previous measurements of Beta-delayed neutron emitters comprise around 230 nuclei, spanning from the 8He up to 150La. Apart from 210Tl, with a minuscule branching ratio of 0.07%, no

Delayed-Neutron Branching Ratios of Precursors in the Fission Product Region

Delayed-neutron branching ratios in the fission product region have been tabulated, and average values have been determined. In order to provide data complementary to published values an experiment
