High Precision Measurement of the Superallowed 0+ 0 + Decay of 22Mg Academic Article uri icon


  • The high precision measurement of the superallowed 0 +0+ decay of 22Mg was presented. The superallowed branching ratio depended on -ray intensities being measured with an HPGe detector calibrated for relative efficiencies to an unprecedented 0.15%. A mass excess for 22Mg of -402(3) keV was obtained.
