A multi-functional teaching apparatus has been developed for ? and ? spectroscopy utilizing a solid-state detector and associated electronics. The possible experiments include conventional measurements to determine ? and ? decay energies, half lives, characteristic energy loss of nuclear particles in matter, and limits on the ?-neutrino mass set from endpoints in ?-decay spectra. In addition, the relativistic mass increase of ? particles is verified using a high-efficiency, axially symmetric permanent ring-magnet ? spectrometer. The basic apparatus also can be adapted for experiments in Rutherford scattering and other nuclear measurements.
