Abstract

We have been developing a new nuclear laser spectroscopic method "OROCHI" for determining spins and moments of exotic RIs. This is a method based on the combination of superfluid helium as a stopper of radioactive isotope (RI) beam and in-situ laser spectroscopy of RI atoms. This unique method will enable us to measure nuclear spins and electromagnetic moments of extremely low yield RI (less than 1 particle per second). To confirm the feasibility of this method for rare radioisotopes, we carried out the first on-line experiment with a 87Rb beam, aiming at evaluating the minimum beam intensity required for the measurement. The LIF (Laser Induced Fluorescence) photons from the 87Rb atoms stopped in He II are successfully observed in the on-line experiment. The obtained LIF intensity is nearly consistent with the intensity calculated from the photo-absorption cross section of atoms in He II.
