Gamma ray spectroscopy at external neutron beams offers unique possibilities for nuclear structure studies. The present talk summarises the recent efforts within the EXILL campaign, in which a highly efficient HPGe detector cluster was put around the intense cold neutron beam Pf1b at the Institut Laue Langevin (ILL). The setup consisted of clover detectors from the EXOGAM array, coaxial...

The studies of exotic nuclei have revealed some new phenomena including modifications of the shell structure or appearance of regions of rapid onset of deformation. The nuclear moments and transition probabilities are among the observables that could shed light both on the single-particle and collective nuclear properties. Therefore they could prove of key importance in regions where interplay...
34. Investigation of high spin states near N=50 shell closure in search for emergence of collectivity using INGA
Prof. Rudrajyoti Palit (TIFR Mumbai)
The excited states of nuclei near closed shell at high angular momentum states have attracted lot of attention in theoretical and experimental research. They provide suitable laboratory for testing the interactions of shell model states, possible presence of high spin isomers and help in understanding the emergence of collectivity as the higher orbitals are occupied. An experimental program...

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. While the intruder character of the 1g9/2 and 2d5/2 neutron orbital induces collectivity by pair excitations from the fp shell into the g9/2 orbital, the parity change hinders...

The influence of isospin nonconservation is important for testing the fundamental symmetries underlying the Standard Model, e.g., corrections to superallowed 0+ -> 0+ -decay rates [Towner and Hardy (2010)], and is pivotal for computing theoretical amplitudes for nucleon transfer reaction which violates isospin selection rule [Blank and Borge (2008)]. Recently, we have constructed a realistic...

A new interest for exotic nuclei further away from the valley of stability arises due to the possibility to use refined experimental methods. In particular, the neutron rich side of the valley still offers a lot of interesting features to be discovered. Our recent experiments on nuclei around A = 100 aim at discovering part of these features trough lifetime measurements and will help...
