Abstract

We describe the design and performance of a high-speed target-rotation system for the study of nuclei far from stability, by which targets can be transported to the detector position in 60 ms after irradiation (90° rotation). The rotor movement and the cyclotron beam pulsing, as well as the data acquisition, are controlled by a microcomputer. Using this device 54Co (T 1 2 = 193 ms) and 58Cu (T 1 2 = 3.2 s) were observed in a test experiment with a transport efficiency of 71 and 98%, respectively (180° rotation).
