How far from stability can we go using gammasphere and the FMA?

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

GammaSphere has been successfully moved from LBNL to ANL for a cycle of research. Most importantly, the direction of research with the device has changed and is presently directed at far-from-stability issues. This new direction matches initiatives for producing radioactive beams for far-from-stability research. We have lowered the cross-section for effective ''in-beam'' experiments into the sub-100 nb regime, more than an order-of-magnitude improvement. In many cases this allows us to move one or two isotopes further from stability than was previously possible. With stable beams, and with very sensitive instrumentation, we can reach the proton dripline for most mass regions ... continued below

Description

GammaSphere has been successfully moved from LBNL to ANL for a cycle of research. Most importantly, the direction of research with the device has changed and is presently directed at far-from-stability issues. This new direction matches initiatives for producing radioactive beams for far-from-stability research. We have lowered the cross-section for effective ''in-beam'' experiments into the sub-100 nb regime, more than an order-of-magnitude improvement. In many cases this allows us to move one or two isotopes further from stability than was previously possible. With stable beams, and with very sensitive instrumentation, we can reach the proton dripline for most mass regions and we can study some of the heaviest nuclei. These projects have revealed interesting new structural effects. However, their full significance will lie in the future, when radioactive beams allow us to probe the entire nuclear landscape. Only then can we move to a more general understanding of nuclear structure and nucleosynthesis.
