A novel experimental approach has been employed for the measurement of β-delayed protons from 24Si produced via the fragmentation of a 28Si beam with an energy of 100 MeV/nucleon. The secondary beam of 24Si was separated by the projectile fragment separator RIPS at RIKEN and was implanted in a 2.6 μm aluminum foil placed parallel to a gas-ΔE and silicon-E detector telescope for the measurement of delayed protons. The above arrangement has led to a very clean, β-ray background free delayed proton energy spectra and a few new proton peaks could be identified from the decay of 24Si.
