Identification of new nuclei near the proton drip line. Academic Article uri icon


  • Nine new very neutron-deficient isotopes of Ag, Pd, Rh, and Ru have been identified among the reaction products of an E/A=60 MeV Cd106 beam using the A1200 projectile fragment separator at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory. One of these isotopes, Ag94, is among the heaviest N=Z nuclei observed so far. The resulting mass spectra are presented and the astrophysical implications of the stability towards proton emission of one of the new isotopes, Ag95, are discussed. 1994 The American Physical Society.
