Canada's National Laboratory for Particle and Nuclear Physics Laboratoire national canadien pour la recherche en physique nucléaire et en physique des particules is undergoing an upgrade and is currently set to be read only. Thank you for your patience.

Laser Spectroscopy


The CFBS (Collinear Fast-Beam Laser Spectroscopy) experiment at TRIUMF is designed to exploit the high beam-intensity and radioisotope-production capability of TRIUMF's Isotope Separator and Accelerator (ISAC), as well as modern ion-trap beam-cooling and bunching techniques, in order to measure the hyperfine energy levels and isotope shifts of short-lived isotopes using laser spectroscopy. These measurements can be used to obtain nuclear structure information on exotic isotopes such as: nuclear magnetic moments (magnetic dipole and electric quadrupole), nuclear spin and changes in mean-square charge radii.
