Total Beta Decay Energies of Neutron-Rich Fission Products
Until recently, very little has been known about the shape of the nuclear mass surface far out on the neutron-rich side of beta stability. The reason for this scarcity of data has been, in the first place, experimental difficulties connected to the short half-lives of the nuclides of interest. The introduction of online isotope-separator techniques has improved the experimental situation considerably, and it is now possible to study in detail the properties of a wide band of highly neutron-rich fission products.
