Walker, PM (2006) Isomer beams INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MODERN PHYSICS E-NUCLEAR PHYSICS, 15 (7). 1637 - 1644.
As a subset of radioactive beams, isomer beams open up the dimensions of excitation energy and angular momentum. The problem of isomer decay rates is briefly presented, as they are not yet well understood. The use of isomer beams for nuclear structure investigations is reviewed, using examples related to exotic decay modes, charge radii, and Coulomb excitation. There are also unique possibilities for the study of induced electromagnetic depopulation. A key aspect is beam purification, for which different techniques are discussed.
