Single-particle and three-quasiparticle cluster states in the light Sn and Sb nuclides
New low energy, low spin levels in 107Sn, 109Sn, and 109Sb have been identified following beta decay of the respective parents. All three experiments were conducted at the ATLAS accelerator facility of Argonne National Laboratory. Reaction products of heavy-ion reactions were separated using the Fragment Mass Analyzer (FMA) and implanted onto the tape of a moving tape collector. The tape was advanced at various time intervals to a detector station comprised of differing combinations of large and small Ge detectors. Gamma singles, gamma-gamma coincidences, and gamma-time data were collected and analyzed. The time data was used to measure decay half-lives and remove contaminants, while gamma-gamma coincidences were used to construct energy level schemes.
