The group’s research focuses on the structure of neutron-rich nuclei. In addition to the study of the evolution of the layered structure up to the limits of stability and beyond, the study of correlations is also pursued
The activities of the group are centered for high energy at RIBF-RIKEN (Japan), while low energy studies are conducted at ISAC2-TRIUMF (Canada) and GANIL/SPIRAL1. In addition to the IN2P3 and CEA laboratories, collaborations have been established with teams in Japan, Germany, Great Britain, South Korea, Canada, Spain and Italy.
High energy direct reactions
In the vicinity of the neutron dripline, the end states are generally unbound and, as such, all the in-flight decay products of the beam (charged quasi-projectile, neutrons and, in some cases, gamma radiation) must be detected and their pulses measured.
In addition to providing higher resolution than can be obtained by proton detection, gamma cascades can provide additional information on the spin-parity of the levels.
R&D technical developments
The group plays a key role in the development of new multi-detectors.
