Abstract

A novel method to produce spin-aligned rare-isotope (RI) beam has been developed, that is the two-step projectile fragmentation method with a technique of dispersion matching. The present method was verified in an experiment at the RIKEN RIBF, where an RI beam of 32Al with spin alignment of 8(1) % was successfully produced from a primary beam of 48Ca, with 33Al as an intermediate nucleus. Figure of merit of the present method was found to be improved by a factor larger than 50 compared with a conventional method employing single-step projectile fragmentation.
