Abstract

Projectile fragments separated in flight with the FRS have been injected into the storage ring ESR. Operating the ESR in the isochronous mode has enabled high-resolution mass measurements of short-lived isotopes. Already in our pilot experiments the Isochronous Mass Spectrometry (IMS) has provided accurate results for a restricted isotope range in the neighborhood of a selected isotope characterized by the best isochronous condition. In the present experiment this restriction has been overcome by precise external magnetic rigidity determination (1.5.10(-4)) at the dispersive midplane of the FRS. In this way the mass resolving power for neutron-rich fission fragments covering a large mass-over-charge ratio in one spectrum has been improved by up to one order of magnitude and the accuracy by more than a factor of two.
