Abstract

β-decay nuclides in the immediate neighborhood of 100Sn were studied at the NSCL using the β-Counting System (BCS) and the Segmented Germanium Array (SeGA). The nuclei of interest were implanted into the BCS and properties from both, implantations and subsequent β-decays, were recorded on an event-by-event basis, allowing for the direct observation of half-lives, β-delayed proton emission branching ratios, and β-end point energies. In addition the use of SeGA in conjunction with the BCS allows the observation of the prompt γ radiation from implantations and as well as photons emitted following β and β-delayed proton decay.
