The Mystery of the Disappearing Isotope
A fortunate historical circumstance happened in our country in the 1950’s. On the one hand the recently formed CNEA (the Argentine AEC) counted with a cyclotron capable of producing unknown, until
Production of 88Nb and 170Ta for chemical studies of element 105, Db, using the GARIS gas-jet system
A technology to utilize radioisotopes of Nb and Ta was developed for chemical studies of element 105, Db, by coupling a gas-jet transport system to the RIKEN gas-filled recoil ion separator (GARIS).
2014 Update of the Discoveries of Nuclides
The 2014 update of the discovery of nuclide project is presented. Only six new nuclides were observed for the first time in 2014 while the assignments of seventeen other nuclides were revised. In
Reexamining the half-lives of 195 Os and 195 Ir
It is argued that the original assignment is correct and the half-life of Os should be 6.5(11) min, consistent with the original measurement, and the value of the only available measurement should be reassigned to 2.29(17) h.

Level structures in odd-odd deformed nucleus 184Ta
Abstract.A detailed low-energy level scheme of the odd-odd n-rich nucleus 18473Ta111 is constructed using the well tested Two-Quasiparticle Rotor Model (TQRM) for calculating the bandhead energies of


New Radioactive Isotopes for Iridium.
Abstract : The previous work on this element, iridium, has resulted in the observation of a number of radioactive isotopes. However, on the neutron deficient side of the stable isotopes only one
CXXIX. Radioactive 186 tantalum
Abstract The new radioactive isotope I86Ta has been prepared and its decay characteristics determined as follows:— The mass assignment suggested by its production by (n, p), but not by (7, P),
Observation of 197Os
Osmium isotope, 197Os, produced with 14 MeV neutrons through the reaction of 198Pt(n,2p)197Os, has been identified and its decay properties have been studied with a g(X) spectroscopic method. The ten
New Neutron-Deficient Isotopes of Rhenium
Cerium-132, a positron emitter with a half-life of 4.2 plus or minus 0.2 hours, was identified through its generic relationship to the known daughter nuclide, La/sup 132/. An activity of 30-minutes
Constitution of Osmium and Ruthenium.
THESE two elements yield volatile tetroxides and by means of these their mass-spectra have now been obtained. Osmium tetroxide was first experimented with; its action on the discharge, even in the
Selective on-line separation of new Ta, Zr and Sr isotopes
Tantalum 164 to 167, Zirconium 82 to 84 and Strontium 78 have been selectively observed at the ISOCELE-2 on-line mass separator (1) in the TaF4+, ZrF3+ and SrF+ compound form. New isotopes have been
A new radioisotope, 172Ta
Neutron deficient radioactive isotopes of rhenium
A study has been made of neutron deficient radioactive isotopes of rhenium. Using the 60-inch Crocker Laboratory cyclotron, bombardments have been made of tantalum with 38, 30, and 19 Mev
Targets of normal rhenium, and of rhenium enriched in each stable isotope, were bombarded by protons in the energy range 10 to 80 Mev. These produced osmium and rhenium isotopes of masses 185, 183,
