beta(+) decay of Ga-61
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2002
The mirror beta(+) decay of Ga-61 was investigated by means of beta- and gamma-ray spectrometry at the ISOLDE-PSB facility using laser ionization and mass separation. The results for the Ga-61 half-life and the Q(EC) value are 168(3) ms and 9255(50) keV, respectively. The beta-decay strength to the ground and low-lying excited states of the daughter Zn-61 was deduced. The experimental results are in a good agreement with large-scale shell-model calculations.
