Reductionofthebackground

  • Heavy fusionelementsand high beam energies Fusion crosssectionsdecrease, fissionincreases

  • 1. Approach: Purifyingthespectra

  • 2. Approach: Suppression ofthefissionphotons

Solution ray multiplicity1

Solution: -raymultiplicity

  • Internal conversion: Interaction betweenelect.-magn. fieldsoftheexcitednucleiwithatomicelectrons (mostlyof K-shell).

  • Vacantshell will befilledfrom an electronof an highershell Charact. X-rayradiation

  • -rayenergycalculable via Moseley‘slaw

  • -ray-raycoincidencemethod

    • Unsufficientlevelschemeand large A high multiplicity:

    • Several-rays per decay Gate
