The advent of radioactive ion beam facilities, both in Europe (FAIR, SPIRAL2, SPES, HIE-ISOLDE and, in the future, EURISOL) and worldwide (e.g. FRIB, RIKEN) is expecting to give access to unreachable so far exotic nuclei and exotic processes. This in turn demands development and usage of highly efficient and dedicated instrumentation. For gamma ray detection with high-energy resolution large...

Various physics themes have been addressed, during the AGATA Demonstrator experimental campaign at LNL, by exploring different mass regions in the nuclear landscape, ranging from the study of the hydrogen burning CNO cycle in the light 15O nucleus to the non-yrast octupole-deformed bands expected in the moderately p-rich 222Th,220Ra heavy nuclei. In this such campaign the complementary...

Experiments with exotic nuclei stored in a ring have shown a huge potential in the last years. Such experiments profit from high revolution frequencies of stored beams, which allows one to 'recycle' the exotic nuclei, and from low background conditions. Well-established scientific programs on mass and half-life measurements are pursued at such facilities , and new ones are being tested on...

After almost two decades of operation purified radioactive ion beams of more than 15 different elements, mainly devoted to decay studies, have been obtained by resonant laser ionization with the Leuven Isotope Separator Online (LISOL) facility, at the Cyclotron Research Center (CRC), Louvain-la-Neuve. Production and thermalization of radioactive species in a cell filled with ultra-pure buffer...
