The presence of large shell gaps at N=Z=34 and 36 at both oblate and prolate shape has long been predicted to lead to a coexistence of shapes in this region. Recent results are beginning to challenge whether such oblate shapes can indeed be located. We present two complementary approaches to investigating such shape coexistence. The first is the reorientation effect in low energy Coulomb...

The replacement of the N=20 spherical shell gap in nuclei of the island of inversion by the N=14,16 gaps can be explained by the tensor monopole interaction between the proton and neutron Fermi levels. The next step in understanding the evolution of shell structure is to measure the strengh of this interaction, which is present throughout the nuclear chart. The ideal tool for this are...

Results from a recent ISOLDE experiment, where the half-life of Ca38 and the beta-decay Q value were measured, will be presented and put into the contexte of world-wide efforts in this field. Possible new measurements at ISOLDE will be proposed.
