The goal of the PRESPEC-AGATA project is to investigate the structure of exotic nuclei by performing in-beam gamma-spectroscopy experiments employing the SIS-FRS accelerator complex at GSI. The experimental set-up currently includes 19 AGATA high-resolution tracking gamma detectors providing about 10% full energy efficiency at 1 MeV. A set of advanced heavy ion detectors is used identification...

As ab-initio calculations of atomic nuclei enter the A=20-100 mass range, one of the biggest challenges is to provide accurate predictions for the vast majority of open-shell (degenerate) isotopes. I discuss recent developments of ab-initio nuclear structure theory for medium-mass nuclei, with focus on extensions to open-shell systems and inclusion of three-body forces. I then present the...

The GANIL facility, Caen (France), will host the European AGATA germanium array from 2014 to 2015. AGATA will be coupled to the VAMOS spectrometer and/or other available ancillary detectors using the high intense stable heavy ions beam delivered by the GANIL cyclotron and the radioactive beam delivered by the SPIRAL1 facility. At GANIL, the AGATA spectrometer can be couple with a large number...

The neutron-rich lead and mercury region has been so far scarcely explored due to its high mass and neutron excess, which force the use of fragmentation reactions with relativistic beams. Neut on rich nuclei beyond 208Pb were populated by using a 1 GeV/A 238U beam at GSI. The resulting fragments were separated and analyzed with the FRS-RISING setup. Many neutron-rich isotopes were identified...
