  4. Spin-alignment • • Spontaneous fission - almost complete oblate alignment initially • BUT loss of alignment during de-excitation • Alignment ~ 0.28 for low-lying levels • Preservation of alignment  (i) fully-stripped fragments  (a) high primary beam energy  GSI not GANIL (b) production target not too thick (ii) Low (~ 20%) electron pick-up probability - depends on A and Z • high secondary beam energy > 150 MeV/u (iii) implant into appropriate (thick) crystal, e.g. Pb

  5. TDPAD Set-up: Plan View • • Bruker B-E 25v Electromagnet • - Pole diameter 250 mm • - Total weight 1850 kg • Excellent homogeneity • < 10-4 under typical conditions

  6. TDPAD Set-up: Side View

  7. TDPAD Method • Observe Larmor precession of nuclear spins via • • Sensitivity depends on • Radiation parameter A2 • Total number of emitted γ-rays • Number of detectors • Intrinsic efficiency of detectors • Detector dimensions • Crystal-detector distances

  8. Prompt Background • Prompt flash  (i) shield detectors against low-energy photons (ii) observe high-energy γ-rays in experiments (iii) discard spin rotation data for t < 0.5 μs  (a) lose a lot of statistics (b) isomers having t1/2 0.5 μs difficult to access

  9. Summary • • 500 MeV/u 238U  150 MeV/u 135Te • 22% probability of electron pick-up in thin plastic scintillator • 22% of nuclei not aligned • reduced amplitude of oscillations in spin rotation pattern • greater statistics required • higher energies excluded because of prompt flash and crystal thickness • lower energies excluded because of increased probability of pick-up BUT existing production cross-section based on 750 MeV/u 238U • what is the production cross-section at 500 MeV/u? • • In A ~ 80 region, electron pick-up less probable • 90 MeV/u acceptable  prompt flash less severe • The region A 140 may be completely excluded

  10. Outstanding Issues • • Support structure for stopped beam campaign • • Support for magnet • • Installation and testing of magnet • - starting no earlier than July 2004 • • Map of stray magnetic field • • Immunity of Cluster detectors to magnetic field • - insertion of detectors between coils of magnet possible? • • Require collaborators with experience in • conducting isomer experiments • tuning FRS • operating data acquisition system • • Other groups invited to use our set-up
