    • Beta decay of Ga-62 

      Hyman, BC; Iacob, VE; Azhari, A.; Gagliardi, Carl A.; Hardy, John C.; Mayes, VE; Neilson, RG; Sanchez-Vega, M.; Tang, X.; Trache, L.; Tribble, Robert E. (American Physical Society, 2003)
      We report a study of the beta decay of Ga-62, whose dominant branch is a superallowed 0(+)-->0(+) transition to the ground state of Zn-62. We find the total half-life to be 115.84+/-0.25 ms. This is the first time that the ...
    • High precision measurements of Na-26 beta(-) decay 

      Grinyer, GF; Svensson, CE; Andreoiu, C.; Andreyev, AN; Austin, RAE; Ball, GC; Chakrawarthy, RS; Finlay, P.; Garrett, PE; Hackman, G.; Hardy, John C.; Hyland, B.; Iacob, VE; Koopmans, KA; Kulp, WD; Leslie, JR; Macdonald, JA; Morton, AC; Ormand, WE; Osborne, CJ; Pearson, CJ; Phillips, AA; Sarazin, F.; Schumaker, MA; Scraggs, HC; Schwarzenberg, J.; Smith, MB; Valiente-Dobon, JJ; Waddington, JC; Wood, JL; Zganjar, EF. (American Physical Society, 2005)
      High-precision measurements of the half-life and beta-branching ratios for the beta(-) decay of Na-26 to Mg-26 have been measured in beta-counting and gamma-decay experiments, respectively. A 4 pi proportional counter and ...
    • Precise measurement of alpha(K) for the M4 transition from Ir-193(m): A test of internal-conversion theory 

      Nica, N.; Hardy, John C.; Iacob, VE; Raman, S.; Nestor, CW; Trzhaskovskaya, MB. (American Physical Society, 2004)
      The 10.5-day isomer in Ir-193 decays by a single 80.2-keV M4 transition directly to the ground state of that nucleus. We have measured the total intensity of K x rays relative to 80.2-keV gamma rays for this transition to ...
    • Precise measurement of K-shell fluorescence yield in iridium: An improved test of internal-conversion theory 

      Nica, N.; Hardy, John C.; Iacob, VE; Montague, JR; Trzhaskovskaya, MB. (American Physical Society, 2005)
      We have measured the total intensity of K x rays relative to 129.4-keV gamma rays from decay of the second excited state in Ir-191. This (M1+E2) transition was observed following the beta decay of 15.4-d Os-191. Our measured ...
    • Q value of the superallowed decay of Mg-22 and the calibration of the Na-21(p,gamma) experiment 

      Savard, G.; Clark, JA; Buchinger, F.; Crawford, JE; Gulick, S.; Hardy, John C.; Hecht, AA; Iacob, VE; Lee, JKP; Levand, AF; Lundgren, BF; Scielzo, ND; Sharma, KS; Tanihata, I.; Towner, IS; Trimble, W.; Wang, JC; Wang, Y.; Zhou, Z. (American Physical Society, 2004)
      The masses of the radioactive nuclei Mg-22 and Na-22 have been measured with the Canadian Penning trap on-line mass spectrometer to a precision of 3x10(-8) and 1x10(-8), respectively. A Q(EC) value of 4124.39(73) keV for ...
