On-line determination of transport time of a helium-jet system


Journal Article

A rapid and accurate method for determining the recoil transport time of a helium-jet system by measuring the output activity ratio of two nuclides produced in a single charged particle bombardment with known cross-section is given. The minimum transport time of the Washington University helium-jet system, (149±29) ms, was determined using this method with the 0.21 and 78 s isomeric states of 109In. For a 25 MeV alpha- particle bombardment of natural silver the 109In cross-section ratio was found to be σ0.21sσ78s=0.41±0.04. © 1974.
