Properties of exotic nuclei like atomic masses, decay modes, and half-lives can be ideally investigated in storage rings and ion traps. Some experiments can be carried out under conditions which prevail in hot stellar plasmas. The experimental potential of storage and cooling of exotic nuclei is illustrated with recent experimental results and an outlook to future experiments is presented. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    The energy of the vh9/2 orbital in nuclei above N = 82 drops rapidly in energy relative to the vf7/2 orbital as the occupancy of the πh11/2 orbital increases. These two neutron orbitals become nearly degenerate as the proton drip line is approached. In this work, we have discovered the new...

    The FRS-ESR facility at GSI provides one of the most efficient methods for direct mass measurements. In the present experiment, exotic nuclei were produced via fragmentation of 152Sm projectiles in a thick beryllium target at 500-600 MeV/u, separated in-flight with the fragment separator FRS,...
