Invited Papers Nuclear Spectroscopy


Advances in experimental techniques are discussed for the study of long-lived isomers using gammasphere. Spectroscopy of neutron-rich nuclei in the A ∼ 180 region is made possible for the first time via neutron transfer from heavy beams, and long-predicted high-K isomers are observed.
