3 Outline Rick’s thesis work (circa 1967, ‘before my time’) A hard act to follow....heavy, neutron-rich DIC around 194 Os (shape shifters). ISOL work, pushing the limits, 182 Yb. Isomer fragentation spectroscopy at GSI – 202 Pt single particle state inversion – 190 W, sub-shell closure ? Towards 170 Dy, best K-isomer and SU(3) Future prospects with RIA and others ?

7 Importance of channel selection, circa

8 > >0 + 1 Ge arrays and HI beams allow  ) coincs. to probe yrast states to ‘high spins’ (12 + in 192 Os currently) and study eg. rotational alignments. Ga.Sp data (2001), Surrey, Legnaro et al. WNSL data, c. 1967

11 First Identification of 182 Yb: GSI MeV/u on 186 W. Use GSI online mass-sep + tape- transport system to take A=182 isobars to Total Absorption Spectrometer (TAS). S. Al-Garni et al. Surrey/GSI/Liverpool

12 S. Al-Garni et al. Surrey/GSI/Liverpool) Yb (Z=70) X rays but lack of e - coincs? Implication: 1 min. isomer populates GSB in 182 Yb. (102, 228 keV) A=182

13 primary beam 1GeV/u Production target Central focus, S2 Final focus, S4  E(Z 2 ) catcher degrader dipole, B  scint MW=x,y scint (veto) Use FRS (or LISE3) to ID exotic nuclei. Transport some in isomeric states (TOF~ x00ns). Stop and correlate isomeric decays with nuclei id. eg. R. Grzywacz et al. Phys. Rev. C55 (1997) p1126 -> LISE C.Chandler et al. Phys. Rev. C61 (2000) >LISE M. Pfutzner et al. Phys. Lett. B444 (1998) p32 -> FRS

14 Gamma-gamma analysis on 200 Pt isomer (21 ns!), Caamano et al. Nucl. Phys. A682 (2001) p223c; Acta Phys. Pol. B32 (2001) p763

17 33 ns isomer in 195 Os (last stable 192 Os), useful test of structure in prolate/oblate shape coexistence region. 194 Os Wheldon et al. Phys. Rev. C63 (2001) (R) First id of ‘doubly mid-shell’ nucleus, 170 Dy (N=104, Z=66). K=6 + isomers predicted for well deformed N=104 nuclei. TRS calcs (F.Xu) predict a very ‘stiff’, highly deformed prolate nucleus. Could be the best K-isomer? Data from M.Caamano et al.
