Abstract

Nuclear masses of neutron-rich isotopes in the Z ∼ 20 - 30 region have been measured by the time-of-flight technique at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL). The time-of-flight technique has shown the potential to access nuclear masses very far from stability when applied at radioactive beam facilities like the NSCL. Such measurements would provide valuable information for astrophysical model calculations of processes involving exotic nuclides, for example the r-process, and electron captures in the crust of accreting neutron stars.
