Abstract

A complete characterisation of the β-decay of neutron-rich nuclei can be obtained from the mea- surement of β-delayed gamma rays and, whenever the process is energetically possible, β-delayed neutrons. The accurate determination of the β-intensity distribution and the β-delayed neutron emission probability is of great relevance in the fields of reactor technology and nuclear astrophysics. A programme for combined measurements using the total absorption gamma-ray spectroscopy tech-nique and both neutron counters and neutron time-of-flight spectrometers is presented.
