SHE: Where the isle of stability is located?

what are the corresponding shell effects ?

Well identified research program:

-Systematic search of SHE

-Study of the ‘stabilizing’ shell structure

-Study of complete fusion - fission processes

Future prospects and needs for nuclear structure studies with high intensity stable beams

  • Off-beam spectroscopy - Decay studies:up to few 100pmA

  • (target technology and spectrometer with appropriate rejection power).

Cross section down to 1pb will be reachable!

  • In-beam g and e- spectroscopy :up to few 100pnA

  • (highly segmented detectors, digital electronics,time stamping)

Cross section below 100pb will be reachable!

Secondary reactions (coulex) at the focal plan:

(inverse kinematics, dedicated recoil spectrometer and secondary beam transport)

Example: With a pmA primary beam, the Coulomb excitation of superheavy elements

or N=Z nuclei, produced with cross section down to the mb becomes feasible


Future prospects and needs for nuclear structure studies with high intensity stable beams

The low energy nuclear structure community has well defined and promising

research programs for the future. Many of them are based on measurements to be carried out using higher intensity stable beams.

The in-beam studies will benefit from the high segmentation of new detection

Systems and from digital electronics, in order to allow the increase of beam

intensity by one order to two orders of magnitude ( up to few 100pnA).

Other approaches using detection systems after a separator (focal plan)

require a stable beam facility with very high intensities ( up to 100pmA)

In all the cases a dedicated detection system is needed to run experiments

with longer beam time.

Existing European facilities Legnaro, JYFL, GSI (unilac), Ganil (CSS1)

Projects of very high intensity injectors for SPES and SPIRAL2


Future prospects and needs for nuclear structure studies with high intensity stable beams

‘It is certain that even after the construction of second generationradioactive beam facilitiescritical measurements using stable beams will be required. Furthermore, it is almost certain that measurements and discoveries made with radioactive species will stimulate new programs requiring stable beams.’

My suggestion for you would be to have a European working group to assess the research perspectives of the existing stable beam facilities, their needs for development, their specificities or complementarities (from the point of view of the physics program). A report from this working group and its recommendations will be very useful for the community.

Stable beams with moderate intensity (up to few 100pnA) for a wide range of ions should be made available, within the coming years at some of the existing stable beam facilities in order to take advantage of the ongoing detector and electronics developments.

A facility with higher intensity stable beam (up to 1pmA) should exist in Europe : taking advantage (in a way that should be discussed) of the developments of driver accelerators for the future radioactive beam facilities.
