The Cosmic-Ray Isotope Spectrometer is designed to cover the highest decade of the Advanced Composition Explorer’s energy interval, from ∼50 to∼500 MeV nucl −1, with isotopic resolution for elements fromZ ' 2 to Z ' 30. The nuclei detected in this energy interval are predominantly cosmic rays originating in our Galaxy. This sample of galactic matter can be used to investigate the nucleosynthesis of the parent material, as well as fractionation, acceleration, and transport processes that these… CONTINUE READING
