Nuclei far from the valley of stability are of current interest in nuclear structure physics. Especially, big effort has been devoted to investigate the evolution of collectivity of nuclei with large isospin. In order to gain experimental data related to this topic reactions with radioactive beams or deep inelastic reactions have been successfully used. With both types of reactions absolute...

The investigation of the structure and stability of the heaviest elements has been a constant theme in nuclear physics research since the 1940’s. In the last decade or so, a wealth of new data has been produced, both in terms of new elements (up to Z=118) and in detailed spectroscopic studies of nuclei with masses above 240. Such studies provide data concerning nuclear parameters such as...

A new differential-plunger device, DPUNS, has been commissioned to measure the lifetimes of excited states beyond the proton drip line. DPUNS has been coupled to the Jurogam II and RITU spectrometers at the University of Jyvaskyla using proton tagging and to isolate the weakly populated nuclei of interest. Recoil-Distance-Doppler-Shift measurements have been employed to measure the lifetimes...

Besides the synthesis of new superheavy elements detailed nuclear structure investigations are an important tool helping to reveal information on the location and strength of the next spherical proton and neutron shells above the 208Pb (Z=82, N=126). Of specific interest are well prolate deformed nuclei beyond the deformed neutron shell N=152 and Z=100 (fermium) where levels relevant for an...
