Abstract
A recoil mass spectrometer (RMS) has been designed, fabricated and installe d at the 15 degreesS beam-line of the Pelletron at TIFR. The RMS consists o f a quadrupole doublet just after the target chamber followed by an 'electr ostatic deflector', a magnetic dipole and a second electrostatic deflector. The recoils produced in the C-12 + Ni-58 reaction using 60 MeV C-12 beam w ere focussed with the help of electric and magnetic fields and detected in a strip detector placed at the focal plane of the RMS. Further testing of t he spectrometer to obtain mass resolution and efficiency are in progress.
