Abstract

A motor driven plunger has been constructed for measuring lifetimes of nuclear excited states in pico second region. An array consisting of six neutron detectors was used to clean up γ-spectra obtained with CS-HPGe detectors. Lifetimes of low excited states in neutron deficient nuclei with low production cross-section e.g.81Y,77Kr and78Rb are reported.
