We are studying various properties of nuclei over wide area of the nuclear chart by using nuclear reactions with secondary beams of exotic nuclei which have different numbers of neutrons and protons from those of stable nuclei. Wave functions of loosely bound nucleons, change of magic numbers, exotic excitation modes, and reaction mechanisms are studied by utilizing suitable selectabilities of nuclear reactions by selecting suitable incident energies and targets. For these purposes, we are developing high-resolution gamma-ray detectors, GRAPE, high-resolution magnetic analyzer, SHARAQ, and energy-degrading beam line, OEDO.

We are not recruiting graduate students this year.
