Measurement of the lifetime of the excited states in 134Sm – experiment performed at HIL

In the last two weeks, an experiment aiming at the measurement of the lifetime of the excited states in 134Sm, proposed by Dr Saygi from Ankara University, was performed at HIL. The experiment employed the NEEDLE (NEDA+EAGLE) set-up coupled with the PLUNGER device of Cologne University. We thank all the researchers from HIL, the University of Ankara, the University of Cologne, IFJ PAN of Cracow, the University of the West of Scotland, Atomki and the University of Warsaw and the HIL cyclotron’s operators for their important contribution.
The project was partially supported by the EURO-LABS (EUROpean Laboratories for Accelerator Based Sciences) grant.
