Laser Spectroscopy at Argonne National Laboratory

Expected production rates at CARIBU (taken from http://www.phy.anl.gov/atlas/caribu/ATLAS_Cf_upgrade.pdf)

At the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) we conduct experiments at the ATLAS accelerator as well as at the new CARIBU facility. A new collinear laser spectroscopy beamline has been established in collaboration with the working group of Peter Müller in the Low Energy Group at ANL. The goal is to determine the nuclear charge radius of the proton-halo nucleus boron-8 at the ATLAS facility and to perform collinear laser spectroscopy on short-lived fission products of Californium-249 at CARIBU.
These projects have been initiated in the frame of the new Collaborative research Centre (Sonderforschungsbereich) SFB 1245 and are supported by DFG.
