## Mass Difference Calculation (2003 Table) | |

Comments about isobar separation at HRIBF: - Mass excess values are from the 2003 mass table of
G. Audi, A. H. Wapstra and C. Thibault,
Nuclear Physics
**A729**(2003) p. 337-676. This version of the Mass Table was taken from NNDC at BNL; - Isobaric mass differences are given as
M/ΔM = A1 * 931.494013 / (M1 - M2) where M1 is the mass of the desired beam and M2 is the mass of the neighboring isobars. - The isobar separator has a resolving power of M/ΔM~20,000; however, the isobaric separation actually achieved will depend not only on isobaric mass differences but also on the beam emittance, energy spread, and isobar intensity ratios.
- The dispersion of the isobaric separator is given by:
dx(mm) = 5163 * ΔM/M (or ΔE/E if energy spread dominates). This corresponds to 0.258 mm for M/ΔM = 20,000. - Partial isobaric separation will usually be possible for M/ΔM<10,000, but may result in reduced beam intensity.
