Vol. 79, No. 4, October 2000
On the cover: The Munich tandem accelerator, part of the most sensitive AMS facility to detect 63Ni (T1/2 = 100 years). 63Ni was formed by fast neutrons on 63Cu in samples from Hiroshima and Nagasaki. See article by W. Rühm et al. on page 358 for more information. Photograph courtesy of F. Schmidt, Munich.
