A detailed $$alpha$$-decay spectroscopy study of $$^{180}$$Tl has been performed at ISOLDE (CERN). Z-selective ionization by the Resonance Ionization Laser Ion Source (RILIS) coupled to mass separation provided a high-purity beam of $$^{180}$$Tl. Fine-structure $$alpha$$ decays to excited levels in the daughter $$^{176}$$Au were identified and an $$alpha$$-decay scheme of $$^{180}$$Tl was constructed based on an analysis of $$alpha$$-$$gamma$$ and $$alpha$$-$$gamma$$ -$$gamma$$ coincidences. Multipolarities of several $$gamma$$-ray transitions deexciting levels in $$^{176}$$Au were determined. Based on the analysis of reduced $$alpha$$-decay widths, it was found that all $$alpha$$ decays are hindered, which signifies a change of configuration between the parent and all daughter states.

A new high-spin isomer in the neutron-rich nucleus $$^{128}$$Cd was populated in the projectile fission of a $$^{238}$$U beam at the Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory at RIKEN. A half-life of T$$_{1/2}$$ = 6.3(8) ms was measured for the new state which was tentatively assigned a spin/parity of (15$$^-$$). The isomeric state decays via the emission of a 309-keV $$gamma$$ ray with $$E3$$ multipolarity. The experimental results are compared to shell model calculations performed using state-of-the-art realistic effective interactions and to the neighbouring nucleus $$^{129}$$Cd. The comparison with calculations shows that adjustments of the pairing and multipole parts of the effective interaction derived from the CD-Bonn nucleon-nucleon potential are required in order to describe the properties of nuclei in the region around $$^{132}$$Sn.

The $$beta^{-}$$ decay of $$^{34}$$Mg was used to study the $$^{34}$$Al nucleus through $$gamma$$ spectroscopy at the Isotope Separator On-Line facility of CERN. Previous studies identified two $$beta$$-decaying states in $$^{34}$$Al having spin-parity assignments $$J^{pi}$$=4$$^{-}$$ dominated by the normal configuration $$pi$$(d5/2)$$^{-1}$$ $$bigoplus$$ $$nu$$(f7/2) and $$J^{pi}$$ = 1$$^{+}$$ by the intruder configuration $$pi$$(d5/2)$$^{-1}$$ $$bigoplus$$ $$nu$$(d3/2)$$^{-1}$$(f7/2)$$^{2}$$. Their unknown ordering and relative energy have been the subject of debate for the placement of $$^{34}$$Al inside or outside the $$N$$ = 20 "island of inversion". We report here that the 1$$^{+}$$ intruder lies only 46.6 keV above the 4$$^{-}$$ ground state. In addition, a new half-life of $$T_{1/2}$$=44.9(4)ms, that is twice as long as thepreviously measured 20(10) ms, has been determined for $$^{34}$$Mg. Large-scale shell-model calculations with the recently developed SDPF-U-MIX interaction are compared with the new data and used to interpret the mechanisms at play at the very border of the $$N$$ = 20 island of inversion.

The level schemes of neutron-rich isotopes $$^{70}$$Co and $$^{70}$$Ni were populated in the $$beta$$ decay of $$^{70}$$Fe and studied using $$beta$$-delayed $$gamma$$-ray spectroscopy of the $$beta$$ decay, at the RIBF in RIKEN, Japan. The experimental results were compared to state-of-the-art shell-model calculations, and indicate a dominance of prolate deformation in the low-lying states, coexisting with spherical states. The $$beta$$ decay of the $$A=70$$ isobars is shown to progress in accordance to a new type of shell evolution, the so-called Type II, which involves many particle-hole excitations across energy gaps.

Beta-delayed proton emission from $$^{20}$$Mg has been measured at ISOLDE, CERN, with the ISOLDE Decay Station setup including both charged-particle and $$gamma$$-ray detection capabilities. A total of 27 delayed proton branches were measured including seven so far unobserved. An updated decay scheme, including three new resonances above the proton separation energy in $$^{20}$$Na and more precise resonance energies, is presented. Beta-decay feeding to two resonances above the Isobaric Analogue State in $$^{20}$$Na is observed. This may allow studies of the 4032.9(2.4) keV resonance in $$^{19}$$Ne through the beta decay of $$^{20}$$Mg, which is important for the astrophysically relevant reaction $$^{15}$$O($$alpha$$,$$gamma$$)$$^{19}$$Ne. Beta-delayed protons were used to obtain a more precise value for the half-life of $$^{20}$$Mg, 91.4(1.0) ms.

RENiO$$_3$$ (RE = rare-earth element) and V$$_2$$O$$_3$$ are archetypal Mott insulator systems. When tuned by chemical substitution (RENiO$$_3$$) or pressure (V$$_2$$O$$_3$$), they exhibit a quantum phase transition (QPT) between an antiferromagnetic Mott insulating state and a paramagnetic metallic state. Because novel physics often appears near a Mott QPT, the details of this transition, such as whether it is first or second order, are important. Here, we demonstrate through muon spin relaxation/rotation experiments that the QPT in RENiO$$_3$$ and V$$_2$$O$$_3$$ is first order: the magnetically ordered volume fraction decreases to zero at the QPT, resulting in a broad region of intrinsic phase separation, while the ordered magnetic moment retains its full value until it is suddenly destroyed at the QPT. These findings bring to light a surprising universality of the pressure-driven Mott transition, revealing the importance of phase separation and calling for further investigation into the nature of quantum fluctuations underlying the transition.

The $$beta$$ decay of the semi-magic nucleus $$^{130}$$Cd has been studied at the RIBF facility at the RIKEN Nishina Center. The high statistics of the present experiment allowed for a revision of the established level scheme of $$^{130}$$In and the observation of additional $$beta$$ feeding to high lying core-excited states in $$^{130}$$In. The experimental results are compared to shell-model calculations employing a model space consisting of the full major $$N=50-82$$ neutron and $$Z=28-50$$ proton shells, and good agreement is found.

Isomeric states in $$^{194}$$Po and $$^{192}$$Po were studied at the velocity filter SHIP. The isotopes were produced in the fusion-evaporation reactions $$^{141}$$Pr($$^{56}$$Fe, $$p2n$$)$$^{194}$$Po and $$^{144}$$Sm($$^{51}$$V, $$p2n$$)$$^{192}$$Po. Several new $$gamma$$-ray transitions were attributed to the isomers and $$gamma$$-$$gamma$$ coincidences for both isomers were studied for the first time. The 459-keV transition earlier, tentatively proposed as de-exciting the isomeric level in $$^{194}$$Po, was replaced by a new 248-keV transition, and the spin of this isomer was reassigned from (11$$^{-}$$) to (10$$^{-}$$). The de-excitation of the (11$$^{-}$$) isomeric level in $$^{192}$$Po by the 154-keV transition was confirmed and a parallel de-excitation by a 733-keV (E3) transition to (8$$^{+}$$) level of the ground-state band was suggested. Moreover, side feeding to the (4$$^{+}$$) level of the ground-state band was proposed. The paper also discusses strengths of transitions de-exciting 11$$^{-}$$ isomers in neighboring Po and Pb isotopes.

For the first time, the decay of excited states in a nucleus situated "south-east" of $$^{132}$$Sn have been observed, in a region where experimental information is limited to ground-state properties. Six $$gamma$$ rays from $$^{133}$$Cd, produced in the fragmentation of a $$^{238}$$U beam at RIBF at RIKEN. The $$gamma$$ rays were studied using the EURICA array of Ge detectors. The new experimental information is compared to results from realistic shell-model calculations, which are the first in this region far from stability. Comparison with calculations suggests that at least four out of six new transitions can be attributed to the particle-hole configuration of one neutron in the $$f_{7/2}$$ and one proton hole in the $$g_{9/2}$$ orbits, respectively. This work constitutes an important first step towards the exploration of nuclear structure in this unknown region of the nuclear chart.

Fast-timing study of the $$l$$-forbidden 1/2$$^+$$ $$rightarrow$$ 3/2$$^+$$ $$M1$$ transition in $$^{129}$$Sn

The levels in $$^{129}$$Sn populated from the $$beta^-$$ decay of $$^{129}$$In isomers were investigated at the ISOLDE facility of CERN using the newly commissioned ISOLDE Decay Station. The lowest 1/2$$^+$$ state and the 3/2$$^+$$ ground state in $$^{129}$$Sn are expected to have configurations dominated by the neutron $$s_{1/2}$$ ($$l$$=0) and $$d_{3/2}$$ ($$l$$=2) single-particle states, respectively. Consequently, these states should be connected by a somewhat slow $$l$$-forbidden $$M1$$ transition. Using fast-timing spectroscopy we have measured the half-life of the 1/2$$^+$$ 315.3-keV state, $$T_{1/2}$$ = 19(10) ps, which corresponds to a moderately fast $$M1$$ transition. Shell-model calculations using the CD-Bonn effective interaction, with standard effective charges and $$g$$ factors, predict a 4-ns half-life for this level. We can reconcile the shell-model calculations to the measured $$T_{1/2}$$ value by the renormalization of the $$M1$$ effective operator for neutron holes.

Low-lying excited states in $$^{72}$$Ni have been investigated at RIKEN by studying the $$beta$$ decay of $$^{72}$$Co to $$^{72}$$Ni. $$^{72}$$Co was separated with BigRIPS, implanted into the WaS3ABi Silicon array, and the $$gamma$$ ray measured using the EURICA $$gamma$$ spectrometer. From the analysis, 60 new $$gamma$$-ray transitions and 21 new levels in $$^{72}$$Ni were observed. The new experimental information is compared to shell-model calculations which include neutron excitation across the $$fpg$$ shell. The calculations reproduce rather well the observed states, implying that a clear understanding of these low-lying excitations has been achieved.

The $$beta$$ decays of $$^{68,69,70}$$Mn have been measured at the RIBF facility at RIKEN using the EURICA $$gamma$$ spectrometer combined with an active stopper consisting of a stack of Si detectors. Half-lives and $$beta$$-delayed neutron emission probabilities have been extracted for these decays, together with first experimental information on excited states populated in $$^{69,70}$$Fe. The data indicate a continuously increasing deformation for Fe isotopes up to A=70, and interpreted to be due to the interplay between quadrupole correlation of specific neutron orbitals and the monopole component of the proton-neutron interaction.

The $$beta$$ decay of $$^{192,190}$$Pb has been studied using the total absorption technique at the ISOLDE (CERN) facility. The $$beta$$-decay strength deduced from the measurements, combined with QRPA theoretical calculations, allow us to infer that the ground states of the $$^{192,190}$$Pb isotopes are spherical. These results represent the first application of the shape determination method using the total absorption technique for heavy nuclei and in a region where there is considerable interest in nuclear shapes and shape effects.

We report an Fe $$K$$-edge resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) study of K$$_{0.83}$$Fe$$_{1.53}$$Se$$_2$$. This material is an insulator, unlike many parent compounds of iron-based superconductors. We found a sharp excitation around 1 eV, which is resonantly enhanced when the incident photon energy is tuned near the pre-edge region of the absorption spectrum. The spectral weight and line shape of this excitation exhibit clear momentum dependence. In addition, we observe momentum-independent broad interband transitions at higher excitation energy of 3-7 eV. Calculations based on a 70 band $$dp$$ orbital model, using a moderate $$U_{rm eff}$$ = 2.5 eV, indicate that the 1 eV feature originates from the correlated Fe 3$$d$$ electrons, with a dominant $$d_{xz}$$ and $$d_{yz}$$ orbital character. We find that a moderate $$U_{rm eff}$$ yields a satisfying agreement with the experimental spectra, suggesting that the electron correlations in the insulating and metallic iron based superconductors are comparable.

In resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS), core hole resonance modes are used to enhance coupling between photons and low energy electronic degrees of freedom. Resonating with shallow core holes accessed in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) can provide greatly improved energy resolution at standard resolving power, but has been found to often yield qualitatively different spectra than similar measurements performed with higher energy X-rays. This paper uses experimental data and multiplet-based numerical simulations for the M-edges of Co-, Ni-, and Cu-based Mott insulators to review the properties that distinguish EUV RIXS from more commonly performed higher energy measurements. Key factors such as the origin of the strong EUV elastic line and advantages of EUV spectral functions over soft X-ray RIXS for identifying intrinsic excitation line shapes are discussed.

The $$beta$$ decay of $$^{129}$$Cd, produced in relativistic fission of a $$^{238}$$U beam, was studied at the RIKEN Nishina Center. From the $$gamma$$-ray analysis, 31 excited states and 69 $$gamma$$ ray transitions were established in the level scheme of $$^{129}$$In, and compared with state-of-the-art shell-model calculations. It was found that the $$beta$$ decay of $$^{129}$$Cd is dominated by Gamow teller transitions, but a non-negligible contribution to the $$beta$$ decay is also made by first-forbidden transitions. To estimate the contribution of first-forbidden transitions is important for calculations of the $$beta$$-decay half-lives of nuclei in this region.

The $$beta$$-decay half-lives of 110 neutron-rich isotopes of the elements from Rb to Sn were measured at the RIBF Facility at RIKEN, Japan. The new data demonstrate the persistence of shell structure far from stability and have direct implications for the $$r$$-process calculations. In particular, the new half-lives have a global impact on the calculated $$r$$-process elemental abundances, and alleviate the underproduction of isotopes just above and below the A=130 peak, which in the past required the introduction of shell structure modifications. Reaction-network calculations based on the new data reinforce the notion that the r-process abundance pattern may result from the freeze-out of a (n,$$gamma$$)$$_leftarrow^{rightarrow}$$($$gamma$$,n) equilibrium.

The IAEA recently established a CRP on "Sodium properties and safe operation of experimental facilities in support of the development and deployment of Sodium Cooled Fast Reactors - NAPRO", to be carried out in the period 2013 - 2017. The first phase of the CRP is focused on the collection and assessment of sodium properties, and it will lead to a consistent property data set which will be published in the form of a handbook. This work is carried out by the 11 participating organizations from 10 Member States through the review and evaluation of the existing available data, the identification of the data gaps and the development of recommendations for experimental programmes to support closing these data gaps. A specific work package (WP 1.1), under the leadership of Argonne National Laboratory, is focused on the analysis of physical properties of sodium: thermodynamic properties and transport properties. The expected outcome includes the improved understanding of the availability, accuracy and range of applications of sodium properties centered on fast reactors and other technological applications. The implemented methodology for WP 1.1 is described and so the properties included in WP 1.1 and their classification. Major findings to date related to WP 1.1 are presented in this work, including detailed analysis of two selected properties.
