Beta-delayed proton emission from 97Cd and 99Cd Academic Article uri icon


  • Two new -delayed proton precursors, 97,99Cd, have been identified at the ISOLDE on-line isotope separator. The proton branching ratio for 99Cd is (1.7+1.1-0.5) 10-3. The 99Cd proton spectrum is discussed in terms of the statistical model with Porter-Thomas fluctuations. The half-life of 99Cd was determined to be 163 sec. A search for 98Cd was also performed and it was found to be a pure -emitter with a probable half-life of 8 sec. 1978.
