Abstract
We report on the Level Mixing Resonance experiment performed on the beta-de caying N-18 nucleus produced and aligned in an intermediate-energy fragment ation reaction. From the resonantly induced change in the asymmetry of the beta-decay, measured as a function of a static magnetic field, we derived i nformation on the nuclear moments of the neutron-rich N-18 nucleus. The spe ctroscopic quadrupole moment \Q(N-18, 1(-))\ = 3.2(3)e fm(2) is compared to mean-field calculations.
