Exotic nuclear reaction

Nuclei have macroscopi properties such as surface and shape. “Sticking” a nucleus by means of nuclear scattering can cause rotation or vibration. Since these phenomena, called nuclear collective excitations, reflect fundamental nature of nuclei like its hardness, they have become a major subject of research. Exotic nuclear reaction group will advance research on new aspects of nuclei and on interactions creating collectivities by using RI beams at RIBF.
