High-resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy: a versatile tool for nuclear beta-decay studies at TRIUMF-ISAC Conference Paper uri icon


  • High-resolution -ray spectroscopy is essential to fully exploit the unique, high-quality beams available at the next generation of radioactive ion beam facilities such as the TRIUMF isotope separator and accelerator (ISAC). The 8 spectrometer, which consists of 20 Compton-suppressed HPGe detectors, has recently been reconfigured for a vigorous research programme in weak interaction and nuclear structure physics. With the addition of a variety of ancillary detectors it has become the world's most powerful device dedicated to -decay studies. This paper provides a brief overview of the apparatus and highlights from recent experiments. 2005 IOP Publishing Ltd.
