Title: Preparing for Harvesting Radioisotopes from FRIB

In the second quarter of this grant, work has progressed smoothly at all three collaborating institutions. We have recently completed our first experiment at the NSCL under this grant successfully, where 79Kr was collected by cryotrapping from our water target apparatus. The three PI’s, one undergraduate (Boone Marois), two graduate students (Stacy Queern and Matt Scott) and one post-doc (Aranh Pen) were assisted by Dave Morrissey at the NSCL to perform this experiment. The experiment also provided the opportunity for a collaboration meeting of the PI’s to discuss future work on this proposal. Significant progress has been made on both novel radiochemical separations technology at the University of Missouri, and validating a radiochemical separation procedure for 48V at Washington University. The only change in the work-scope of the original proposal is the transition of the Washington University PI to the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
