Research Areas

A nucleus is a finite-body quantum system of hadrons and is a self-organizing system governed by the strong interaction. How do "variety" and "regularity" develop and coexist in the nuclear world? We are aiming at clarifying its mechanism through experimental studies of radio-active nuclei produced at the RI Beam Factory.

In particular, the Spin-Isisopn Laboratory pursues research activities putting focus on interplay of spin and isospin which are manifestations of symmetry of nature.

We are, at present, performing experiments with spin-polarized protons to solve the magicity-loss problem appearing far from the beta-stability line.

Research Subject

  1. Experimental studies of radioactive nuclei via direct reactions
  2. Search for yet-to-be-discovered states through RI-beam induced reactions
  3. Production of spin-polarized nuclei
  4. Study of nucleo-systhesis with heavy-ion storage ring
