Precise half-life measurement of the superallowed emitter S-30 Academic Article uri icon


  • 2018 American Physical Society. We have measured the half-life of S30, the parent of a superallowed 0+0+ transition, to a high precision using very pure sources and a 4 proportional gas counter to detect the decay positrons. Our result for the half-life is 1.179 92(34) s. As a by-product of this measurement, we determine the half-life of its daughter, P30, to be 2.501(2) min.
