Nuclear spectroscopy with Geant4: Proton and neutron emission & radioactivity

Sarmiento, Luis LU and Rudolph, Dirk LU (2016) In Latin American Symposium on Nuclear Physics and Applications 1753.
Abstract
With the aid of a novel combination of existing equipment – JYFLTRAP and the TASISpec decay station – it is possible to perform very clean quantum-state selective, high-resolution particle-γ decay spectroscopy. We intend to study the determination of the branching ratio of the ℓ = 9 proton emission from the Iπ = 19/2−, 3174-keV isomer in the N = Z − 1 nucleus 53Co. The study aims to initiate a series of similar experiments along the proton dripline, thereby providing unique insights into “open quantum systems”. The technique has been pioneered in case studies using SHIPTRAP and TASISpec at GSI. Newly available radioactive decay modes in Geant4 simulations are going to corroborate the anticipated experimental results.
