Abstract

Electron capture β-decay in 54Mn2+ ions in solids is analyzed. It is shown that the decay rate of 54Mn2+ should decrease significantly at low temperatures, approaching a limit of 35% of its room temperature value. It is also shown that the decay rate at low temperatures can be manipulated using resonant electromagnetic fields and the rate can be modulated by a factor of four. Extension to other species is suggested and potential applications are described.
