Abstract
The recently commissioned Recoil Mass Spectrometer (RMS) at the Holifield R adioactive Ion Beam Facility (HRIBF) is described. Consisting of a momentum separator followed by an E-D-E Rochester-type mass spectrometer, the RMS i s the centerpiece of the nuclear structure endstation at the HRIBF. Designe d to transport ions with rigidities near K = 100, the RMS has acceptances o f +/- 10% in energy and +/- 4.9% in mass-to-charge ratio. Recent experiment al results are used to illustrate the detection capabilities of the RMS, wh ich is compatible with many detectors and devices. (C) 2000 Elsevier Scienc e B.V. All rights reserved.
