Solid hydrogen target for missing mass spectroscopy in inverse kinematics [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
By using para-hydrogen and a mechanical press made of neodymium magnets, we have succeeded in making a 1-mm-thick and 30-mm-diameter solid hydrogen target (SHT), and have measured elastic scattering of protons with radioactive ion beams at 300 MeV/u. We also succeeded in making not only a 0.5-mm-thick and 10-mm-diameter SHT but also a 2-mm-thick and 30-mm-diameter SHT to study excited-state properties of nuclei via (p,p′) reactions, and quasi-free (p,p$\alpha$) reactions at intermediate energies. The ortho–para converter and the simple mechanical press show possibilities for making SHTs which have various radii and thicknesses.
