A method whereby mass differences can be measured using the 25-MV tandem accelerator at the Holifield radioactive ion beam facility (HRIBF) is presented. The technique is unconventional in that mass differences will be measured as position differences at the image of the energy-analyzing magnet following the accelerator and will be made at energies where independent isobaric determination will be possible by a δE measurement. The technique is appropriate where the unknown mass is the most neutron-rich isobaric constituent of the beam, such as for neutron-rich fission fragments.
