|Abstract:||A new spectrometer has been built at the EC-JRC IRMM to investigate isomer decay in the millisecond range and activation cross-sections of isotopes, where isomeric states exist and are populated. The spectrometer uses high-resolution ¿-ray detectors and an ionisation chamber for the measurement of charged particles, e. g. fission fragments. NEPTUNE provides pulsed quasi mono-energetic neutrons at pulse repetition frequencies up to 5 kHz and tuneable neutron pulse widths. For this purpose a beam chopper based on a parallel-plate condenser has been integrated into the accelerator beam-line in order to deflect the charged-particle beam onto a tantalum beam dump. An instrument status report is given together with results from first experiments dedicated to the search for shape isomers in 235,239U performed with the NEPTUNE isomer spectrometer.|
