Subject(s): beta-gamma-gamma correlation manganese 56 time reversal violation
Abstract: An experiment to measure time reversal violation in two beta-gamma-gamma cascades of Mn (2.58 h) is discussed. We show how one measures the interference terms in ft-Y-o correlations using experimental quantities. We explain in detail the systematic errors involved in an accurate correlation experiment and point out the inherent limitations of such an experiment for time reversal measurements. Particular attention is given to descriptions of the electronics system used. From measurements of the interference 56 terms in two 0 transitions of Mn ,we conclude that the phase difference + -2 + between Ml and E2 reduced matrix elements is {equation} for the 1.81 and 2.12 MeV transitions respectively.
