The recent production and acceleration of intense, neutron-rich radioactive ion beams (RIBs) at the HRIBF has yielded interesting results in the Coulomb excitation of these beams. Single-nucleon transfer reactions from light ions have been shown to populate excited states using RIBs. HRIBF has an extensive arsenal of in-beam gamma-ray detectors that are used for these experiments. The central germanium detector array is CLARION, which consists of 11 segmented Clover detectors. In addition, experiments have been carried out using the ORNL-MSU-TAMU Barium Fluoride Array, and we anticipate in the near future to reinstate the Spin Spectrometer, a 4pi array of 70 NaI detectors. An upgrade of CLARION by the addition of up to six Clovers is under active consideration. The possible coupling of RIBs and GAMMASPHERE (9% efficiency at 1.33 MeV) would greatly enhance our high-resolution gamma-gamma detection capabilities and should provide opportunities to do much more detailed studies of nuclei far from stability.
At this time, we envision a mixture of overview talks, contributed talks, and working sessions that will target specific issues or types of experiments. We welcome your suggestions, both for topics that should be discussed and for speakers for the overview talks. Further, if you would like to make a short contributed presentation that addresses a specific technical topic, please provide more information on the registration form.
There will be no registration fee for the workshop, and lunches will be provided.
