The science covered with SHOGUN will cover the same physics cases discussed for example in the in-beam γ-ray spectroscopy part of the next-generation Ge-based spectrometer technical propsals for AGATA and GRETA. The following is a list of some of the experimental methods where in-beam γ-ray spectroscopy is a crucial tool and all of these would benefit greatly from the SHOGUN array.

Some of the observables are listed in parenthesis.

  • Two-step fragmentation reactions (transition energies, level scheme, Ex(2+), Ex(4+))
  • Coulomb excitation (firm Jπ = 2+ assignment, Ex(2+), B(E2))
  • Few-nucleon removal reactions (level scheme, l-transfer, spectroscopic factors)
  • Inelastic proton scattering (Mn/Mp, Ex(2+), Ex(4+), J assignments)
  • Recoil distance Doppler shift (RDDS) (lifetimes, B(E2))
  • Doppler shift attenuation method (DSAM) (lifetimes, B(E2))
  • Recoil shadow method (lifetimes, B(E2))
