Event description

Description

The MINIBALL setup at the ISOLDE facility was exploited to perform Coulomb excitation (Coulex) measurements using radioactive beams at safe bombarding energies far below the Coulomb barrier in order to obtain nuclear structure information. An upgrade of this facility, HIE-ISOLDE, is currently capable of delivering higher beam energies. For the first time, this provides an opportunity to use a variety of exotic beams with energies around the Coulomb barrier together with the MINIBALL setup to perform Coulomb-nuclear excitation (CNE) measurements. Much higher excitation probabilities, or data with higher statistics, for some of the beam-target combinations can be obtained using CNE compared to that using Coulex. Therefore, there is an excellent opportunity at present to study nuclear structure of some of the exotic species with low-production cross sections at HIE-ISOLDE.

The meeting is aimed at bringing together people with interest and experience in performing reactions around the Coulomb barrier. Discussions will be particularly focused on studies of level structures and electromagnetic matrix elements in exotic nuclei by employing the CNE technique at the MINIBALL/HIE-ISOLDE facility. A few invited presentations are planned covering some topics especially on opportunities with the HIE-ISOLDE facility, cross section calculations for reaction channels at the energies close to the Coulomb barrier, sensitivity of inelastic channels to electromagnetic moments, Coulex analysis techniques relevant to CNE and recent measurements at HIE-ISOLDE. An open discussion will follow to plan proposals that can be submitted to INTC. The meeting is also suitable for early career PhD/PDRA level researchers to contribute to the discussions.
