Stopped rising physics aims philosophy l.jpg

Stopped RISING Physics Aims & Philosophy

  • Study the evolution of single-particle / shell structure

    (shell melting ?) as a function of N:Z ratio.

    • 56Ni (N=28 ; Z=28) 100Sn (N=50: Z=50)

    • 132Sn (N=82 : Z=50)

    • 208Pb (N=126 : Z=82)

  • Study the structure of nuclei with the most exotic

    proton-to-neutron ratios:

    • Proton drip-line N=Z

    • Neutron-rich ‘terra incognita’.

  • Nuclear ‘symmetries’ and relevance of quantum numbers:

    • Isospin, T(N:Z ratio)

    • Nuclear Deformation,b2 (p-n interactions)

    • Angular Momentum Projection, K (axial symmetry)

    • Critical Point Symmetries e.g., X(5)

  • Reaction mechanism studies in fragmentation.

Active stopper rising l.jpg

Active Stopper RISING

  • Isomer spectroscopy requires isomers!

  • Would like to be able to do beta-delayed

    spectroscopy on (neutron-rich) fragments.

  • Problem….implanting ~10 GeV energy

    followed by ~200 keV in same pixel.

  • Solution? ‘Logarithmic’ pre-amps.
