Measurements of Nuclear Masses Far from Stability
Measurements of properties of nuclei far from nuclear stability provides a challenge to both the experimenter and theorist. To the first, it represents a new frontier in experimentation, and to the second a fertile source of data. There has been in recent years considerable effort on the neutron rich nuclei, and a smaller yet important attack in reaching the limits of particle stability on the proton rich side. Methods for measuring masses of nuclei far from nuclear stability are reviewed with emphasis placed on reaching proton-rich nuclei using particle transfer reactions such as (p,6He), (3He,8Li) and (3He,6He).
