The first accelerated exotic beam of the SPIRAL (“Production System of Radioactive Ion and Acceleration On-Line”) facility at GANIL at Caen has been delivered for experiments in September 2001. After working for almost 5 years, 32 experiments were performed in the facility using exotic isotopes of helium, oxygen, neon, argon and krypton. The intensities of the radioactive beams...

EXCYT (EXotics with CYclotron and Tandem) is a ISOL facility located at INFN-LNS to produce and accelerate radioactive ion beams. The primary heavy ion beam provided by the K-800 Superconducting Cyclotron (up to 80 MeV/amu, 1 pµA) generates, in a target-ion source complex (TIS), the required nuclear species which will be post-accelerated by the 15 MV Tandem. For some ion beam such as for...

Type I X-ray bursts, thermonuclear runaways on the surface of an accreting neutron star in a binary system, are one of the known sites for the rapid proton capture process (rp-process)[1,2]. After accumulation of material, mainly hydrogen and helium, on the surface of the neutron star, the triple-alpha reaction triggers a series of fast (a,p) and (p,g) reactions, with subsequent beta...

New results will be presented for the structure of neutron-rich Fe nuclei based on data from deep inelastic scattering studies with GAMMASPHERE and beta decay of Mn nuclei at ISOLDE isolated with the Resonance Ionization Laser Ion Source. In particular, the low-energy levels in 64Fe are found to be well described by shell-model calculations using pf –shell neutrons and protons. The...
