Keywords: exotic nuclei | lifetime | storage ring | collector ring

Short-lived exotic nuclei can be produced and separated with the high-energy nuclear beam facility called fragment separator at the Centre for Heavy Ion Research. These nuclides can be injected and stored in the storage ring called experimental storage ring. The lower lifetime limit of the presently existing methods for mass measurements on these nuclides at the experimental storage ring is about a few seconds. We have developed and investigated an isochronous operational mode of the future collector ring, that makes mass measurements feasible for nuclides with lifetimes down to a few microseconds. A mass resolving power of about 150 000 is expected.
