    • Abstract

       

      A plunger set-up has been designed and constructed to measure picosecond nuclear half-lives using recoil distance method (RDM). The system has been used to measure the half-lives of nuclear states in35Cl,37,38Ar and40K. The shortest half-life measured with the system isT1/2=0.36(14) ps for the 4366 keV (8+) state and the longest half-life isT1/2=1.10(7) ns for the 2543 keV (7+) state in40K.
