A method is proposed for the experimental measurement of neutron separation energies for nuclei far from stability. The procedure is based on determining cross sections for the production of nuclei, by projectile fragmentation, for which only protons are removed but for which the number of neutrons is left unchanged. A simple Abrasion-Ablation analysis leads to a cross section prediction which is sensitive to the neutron separation energy after a single parameter is adjusted in comparison with…

NUMBER PROJECTED TWO-NEUTRON SEPARATION ENERGY IN THE NEUTRON-RICH RARE-EARTH REGION
The variation of the two-neutron separation energy (S2N), as a function of the neutron number N, is studied using a microscopic model that includes the pairing effects rigorously within the

MASS MEASUREMENT FAR FROM STABILITY
The measurement of nuclear masses far from stability provides a fundamental test for our understanding of nuclear structure. Over the last decade new experimental techniques for the production and
Rare isotope production near the neutron drip line
The underlying mechanism involved in the production of very neutron-rich nuclides using projectile fragmentation is studied with an abrasion-ablation (AA) model. The AA model suggests that very
Proton removal in peripheral nuclear collisions at relativistic energies
Abstract The projectile-fragment separator FRS, recently installed at the heavy-ion synchrotron SIS18 at GSI, was used to measure the formation cross sections and longitudinal-momentum distributions
Production of neutron-rich isotopes by cold fragmentation in the reaction $^{197}$Au + Be at 950 A MeV
Abstract The production cross sections and longitudinal-momentum distributions of very neutron-rich isotopes have been investigated in the fragmentation of a 950 A MeV 179 Au beam in a beryllium
New neutron-rich isotopes in the scandium-to-nickel region, produced by fragmentation of a 500 MeV/u86Kr beam
We have measured production cross-sections of the new neutron-rich isotopes58Ti,61V,63Cr,66Mn,69Fe,71Co and neighbouring isotopes that have been identified as projectile fragments from reactions
Fragmentation cross sections of relativistic 208Pb projectiles
Production cross sections of more than 270 isotopes ranging from Z = 59 to Z = 82 were measured in the reaction 208Pb(1 GeV A)+Cu. The method of identifying the projectile fragments and evaluating
Modern approaches for direct mass measurements far from stability
Abstract Today a variety of techniques exist for direct mass measurements on unstable isotopes. The most modern approaches are based on the measurement of time of flight and frequencies. They allow
New neutron-rich isotopes, 34Ne, 37Na and 43Si, produced by fragmentation of a 64 A MeV 48Ca beam
Abstract An experiment to the search for very neutron-rich nuclei has been performed at RIKEN, using projectile fragmentation of an intense 64 A MeV 48Ca beam and the fragment separator RIPS. Three
