Trial for the long neutron counter TETRA using $^{96,97}$Rb radioactive sources

Abstract : The TETRA long neutron counter is operated at ALTO ISOL facility behind the PARRNe mass separator. TETRA has been proven to be a unique instrument for measurements of β-decay properties of short-lived neutron-rich nuclei having applications for the nuclear structure and/or astrophysical r-process calculations. A proper calibration of TETRA can allow validation of the experimental procedure used for determination of β-delayed one-neutron emission probabilities (P1n). It requires the use of a well-known β-neutron decaying radioactive source which can be only produced and measured on-line due to its short half-life. Thus, the present paper reports on measurements of P1n and T1/2 of 96,97Rb nuclei using TETRA . The results obtained are in a good agreement with the values available in the literature. This proves that the developed techniques can be applied to unknown P1n and T1/2 of neutron-rich species.
