Low-lying states in neutron-rich Zn nuclei were measured for the first time via in-beam -ray spectroscopy at RIKEN. These include the 4 to 2 in Zn and the 2 to 0 and 4 to 2 in Zn. The reduced E() energies and increased E(4)/E(2) ratios at =52,54 compared to Zn attest that the magicity is confined just on the neutron number =50 only. The levels observed in Zn suggest the onset of deformation towards heavier Zn isotopes. The data were compared to state-of-the-art shell model calculations.

The first -ray spectroscopy of very neutron rich Kr isotopes was carried out at the RIBF at RIKEN Nishina center. Excited states in these isotopes were populated via (p,2p) reactions using radioactive Rb beams accelerated to 220 MeV/nucleon. The new data show a significant increase in deformation beyond N=60, as well as competing configurations (shape-coexistence) at low energy. The data were compared with beyond-mean-field calculations which predict level energies in good agreement with observation, and suggest oblate-prolate shape coexistence.

Neutron-rich isotopes of selenium, Se, where studied via in beam -ray spectroscopy after nucleon removal reactions at RIBF in RIKEN. The low-energy excitations of these nuclei were investigated using - coincidences, and the first and second excited 2 states were found at remarkably low energies. The analysis and comparison with self-consistent beyond-mean field calculations suggest that both shape coexistence and triaxiality are needed to describe these isotopes.

The first measurement of rays emitted by the very neutron rich nuclei Mo (Z=42) and Zr (Z=40) was carried out at the RIBF facility at RIKEN. These data shine light on the postulated N=70 harmonic oscillator shell. If the spin-orbit splitting which gives rise to the N=82 shell gap is reduced in very neutron-rich nuclei, the harmonic oscillator gap at N=70 should open instead. However, both the measured energy of the first excited state Mo and Zr, respectively 235(7) keV and 185(11) keV, and their E(4)/E(2) ratio, indicate that these nuclei are good rotors, and exclude the shell stabilization scenario at Z=40 and N=70. These results were compared to state-of-the-art density functional theoretical calculations using Gogny and Skyrme effective interactions.

The level structure of the neutron-rich Cu, Cu, and Cu isotopes was investigated using multinucleon transfer reactions at Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro using the AGATA Demonstrator array coupled to the PRISMA magnetic spectrometer. Lifetimes of excited states in Cu nuclei were measured with the recoil-distance Doppler-shift method. The resulting electromagnetic matrix elements for transitions from excited states in Cu nuclei was used to assess the collective or single-particle character of these states. The results are compared with predictions of large-scale shell-model calculations, showing how the proton pf shell evolve as neutrons fill the 1g orbital.
