Nuclear Research with Low Energy Accelerators describes the various programs using low energy accelerators. This book discusses the various techniques and instruments that are available, including beam pulsing or the use of sophisticated high-resolution detecting systems.
Comprised of 23 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the application of lithium-drifted germanium gamma-ray detectors in single detector systems from the perspective of obtaining optimum performance. This text then discusses the nuclear electromagnetic transition probabilities that can be measured by different methods, including Coulomb excitation, electron scattering, and nuclear resonance fluorescence. Other chapters explain the general characteristics and geometry of a coincidence-anticoincidence spectrometer. This book discusses as well the different uses of magnetic spectrometers in experimental studies of nuclear physics. The final chapter deals with the easy access to fast digital computers to obtain more sophisticated raw information.
This book is a valuable resource for physicists, nuclear physicists, and astrophysicists.
