Physics motivation
In the future REX-ISOLDE should give the answer to some
of the following questions.
• Nuclear structure
?
How are level schemes, B(El)-values and quadrupole deformations
changed in a region close to the drip line?
?
What is the most appropriate nuclear model far away from
stability?
?
Do there exists new regions with extreme nucleus deformation?
?
Are there new collective modes to be found with
stable octupole, oblate or triaxial nuclear shape?
?
Neutron halo nuclei: how many are there and
do more forms exist?
• Nuclear astrophysics
?
The production of primordial matter during the early universe:
how did the process continue through
the bottlenecks, e.g. through the 35Ar(p,g)
reaction?
?
What is the magnitude of the astrophysical S factor, and how can the
solar neutrino problem be solved?
• Atomic physics
?
?
Is there a non-parity conservation in heavy ions or atoms?
What are the exact masses of short lived medium and heavy
isotopes?
• Solid state physics
?
How will radioactive implantation, creating point defects and
impurities, on a deep level in the semiconductor affect its
properties?
…and much more
