## Gamma-ray and Electron Spectroscopy in Nuclear PhysicsThis book introduces graduate students to the gamma-ray and conversion-electron spectroscopic methods, which have shed new light on nuclear structure and reaction mechanisms. The simplicity and familiarity of the electromagnetic interaction involved gives accurate values for many nuclear quantities, and both static and dynamic properties can be investigated over a wide range of excitation energies. More experienced nuclear physicists will benefit by the book's review of recent developments in the field, including the development of new experimental techniques such as gamma-detector assemblies, electron spectrometers, and measurements of electromagnetic moments. The book is distinguished by a careful balance between the presentation of theoretical concepts and experimental methods. |
