6 Research objectives DetectorIGISOL systemEfficiency  252 CfAnalysisIntroduction 6/20  Example of exotic nuclei to study neutron BETA

7 Research objectives DetectorIGISOL systemEfficiency  252 CfAnalysisIntroduction 7/20 Applications: Some of them are close to the path of the astrophysical r process, the determination of the full beta strength could help to improve theoretical models used for the calculation of beta decay properties (region A~90) Nuclear reactor safety. (Decay heat, fission reaction control) International projects collaboration: Development and testing instrumentation for the FAIR facility (DESPEC collaboration) Physics knowledge: Study different aspects of the decay of these nuclei and hence provide very complete information about their decay mechanism and structure.
