Conference paper


In our nuclear spectroscopy work at the Nobel Institute of Physics we were faced with the problem of separating activities with half-lives as short as a few minutes. Here a short description of the technical solutions we have chosen and the main factors influencing the decisions will be given. Further, the result of some runs will be reported.
