My work is studying the isotope 102Y which has two beta decaying states which decay into 102Zr. However due to the similar half-lives and small energy separation, it is difficult to separate each of these states to be studied independently. I shall therefore be employing the Phase Imaging Ion Cyclotron Resonance (PI-ICR) technique at the IGISOL facility at the University of Jyväskylä  to separate the two states and measure their masses and production intensities, as this method is known to have a high mass resolution. The states will be then be isolated to have their gamma spectroscopy studied. Evaluating the decay states in this region is important for understanding the deformation of higher-N isotopes and this would aid in the development of models to predict the nature of more exotic nuclei in this region.
