Nucleus is composed of neutrons and protons. We are studying the quantum many body phenomena, such as shape coexistence, exotic deformation, BEC-BCS crossover by employing unique experimental devicesand techniques. We are also pursuing the interdiciplinary research such as nuclear astrophysics and transmutation of nuclear waste. As the experimental devices, we are developing the RIB decelerator named OEDO, a large size tritium titanium target, and a high spin target. We are also developing the gamma ray detectors, recoiled particle detectors, and ultra-thin diamond detector.
