Spectroscopic factors provide unique information on the structure of nuclei, and can be probed by direct reactions. Medium-energy knock-out reactions were the first direct reactions to be applied to the study of exotic nuclei about ten years ago. More recently the availability of post-accelerated ISOL beams has allowed the use of transfer reactions at various facilities like GANIL, TRIUMF,...

The results of the IS530 experiment at ISOLDE revealed new information concerning several nuclei close to the N~20 'Island of Inversion' – 34Mg, 34Al, 34Si. The half-life of 34Mg was found to be three times larger than the adopted value (63(1) ms instead of 20(10) ms). The beta-gamma spectroscopy of 34Mg performed in this experiment for the first time led to the first experimental level scheme...

The beta-delayed three-proton decay has so far only been observed in two nuclei: 45Fe  and 43Cr [2,3]. Pfützner et al.  recently discovered it from 31Ar and it has also been observed now in the analysis of the 31Ar decay-experiment IS476. The IS476 experiment gives the unique possibility to not just identify the decay, but to do spectroscopy on it. This is due to the good energy and...

Calcium isotopes are ideal to explore the evolution of the nuclear shell structure from stability to the neutron-rich extremes, which have very recently become experimentally available. From a theoretical point of view, calcium isotopes are also the frontier for calculations consistently including nucleon-nucleon (NN), and three-nucleon (3N) forces. In the framework given by chiral...

One of the goals of precision measurements in nuclear beta decay is the search for deviations from the Standard Model that would point to new physics.

Production of 7Li is linked to the production of 7Be, which in turn, is related to the reaction 3He + 4He --> 7Be + γ. Measuring this reaction rate is of utmost importance to shed light on 7Li abundance anomaly. A new approach to measuring the reaction rate could be measuring the reverse reaction of Coulomb dissociation of 7Be, preferably in the presence of a heavy target. A related...

In-beam spectroscopic techniques have long been one of the most prominent tools in our effort to disentangle and interpret complex nuclear structure phenomena.

Shell evolution in the vicinity of 68Ni has recently attracted many theoretical and experimental investigations. By now it has been clearly established that the presumed subshell closure at N=40 is not very pronounced.

The 160Yb nucleus (Z=70 and N=90) is double-magic with respect to the predicted Tetrahedral symmetry. Even if already studied in heavy-ion induced reactions, neutron spallation and β+-decay, the non-yrast low-spin states and their properties are not well known. In particular it is not clear if a 3- state exists in 160Yb, which could belong to the tetrahedral band. We propose to study the...

The open-shell nuclei with Z>50 and N<82 are known to have some of the largest ground- state deformations in the nuclear chart. The shape of the nuclei in this region are expected to be prolate, except for a small island of nuclei with Z>62 and N≈78, which are predicted to be oblate. Nuclei near 140Sm are therefore expected to be located in a transitional region between deformed and spherical...
