HRIBF Decay Spectroscopy Workshop
August 18-19, 2003
Bld 6008 Conference Room
The Executive Committee of the HRIBF Users Group will host a workshop on
nuclear decay studies at the HRIBF on August 18-19, 2003 in the conference room of building 6008.
will discuss current capabilities at the HRIBF and develop new ideas for
decay spectroscopy experiments. Particular emphasis will be on experiments
which utilize neutron-rich beams produced from the fission of uranium carbide
at HRIBF. The recent observation of beams containing significant amounts of
78,79Cu and 85,86Ge
indicate that the HRIBF can play a competitive role
in decay spectroscopy of very neutron-rich isotopes. Current and future
radioactive ion beams (RIBs) available at the HRIBF will also be discussed.
This is an excellent opportunity to begin or join a collaboration at
HRIBF and to see how the latest developments in neutron-rich RIB production
at HRIBF can enhance your research program.
The workshop format will consist of a few talks to introduce a topic
followed by short contributed talks about planned or possible experiments
at HRIBF. Generous time will be allocated for discussion.

- Accelerated Beams and Masses
- Studies of short-lived states in neutron-rich nuclei
- Beta decay on the neutron-rich side
- Studies of proton-rich nuclei at the HRIBF
There will be a HRIBF users group meeting on Monday 8/18 from 6-7 PM.

Entrance to ORNL
If you have your badge, don't forget to bring it. If you don't
have your badge (or don't have one), go to the guard station, show your ID
and tell them you are on the visitor list, you will then be instructed on
how to get to the visitor center. All new guests and visitors and those
with expired badges will need to report in at the Visitor Center. You
will need to bring a photo ID. Foreign nationals will need to bring their
passport and visa.
Each person in the car must have their own badge.
There has been a lot of construction in the area of the visitor center.
A map showing how to get there can be downloaded at:
- Participants pay all travel costs.
- Version of transparencies (paper OK, pdf preferred) should be
made available to participants.
- Lunch, Breakfast and breaks provided by JIHIR/HRIBF; no registration fee.
