"Some Experimental Nuclear Physics Research"
U of M's 7-Tesla 'BigSol' superconducting
solenoid magnet at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory
(NSCL) at MSU (now being moved to Texas A&M Cyclotron Institute). I
developed the 'BigSol-spectrometer' device
with collaborators from UM Physics, and the NSCL
at MSU to search for new, exotic neutron-rich isotopes.
The reaction used was 13654Xe+54
fragmented in a thick (114 mg/cm2) nat.C
target at a beam energy of 30 MeV/nucleon (i.e. 4 GeV total kinetic
Over 200 separate isotopes were collected and identified in each
experimental run, several of which had never been produced
