We have performed an experiment to synthesize the element 117 (Ts) with the $$^{48}$$Ca+$$^{249}$$Bk fusion reaction. Four $$alpha$$-decay chains attributed to the element 117 were observed. Two of them were long decay chains which can be assigned to the one originating from the $$alpha$$ decay of $$^{294}$$Ts. The other two were short decay chains which are consistent with the one originating from the $$alpha$$ decay of $$^{293}$$Ts. We have compared the present results with the literature data, and found that our present results mostly confirmed the literature data, leading to the firm confirmation of the synthesis of the element 117.

Alpha-decay chains observed in the element-115 production reactions of $$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{243}$$Am were investigated using a new data set consisting of our recently reported data obtained at GSI and previously reported ones at Dubna and LBNL. Short decay chains of recoil-$$alpha$$-($$alpha$$)-fission type, fourteen of which were observed, and some of which were interpreted as the 2-neutron evaporation products $$^{289}$$Mc, have been reassigned. It is plausible that most of them were assigned to the 3-neutron evaporation products $$^{288}$$Mc whose decay chain would on the way have branches of EC decays followed by fission.

Thirty correlated $$alpha$$-decay chains of element 115 were observed, which were consistent with previous observations interpreted as the decay chain of $$^{288}$$115. GEANT4 Monte-Carlo simulations were performed to reproduce high-resolution $$alpha$$-photon coincidence results, which allows one to propose Q$$_{alpha}$$ values and excitation schemes of the superheavy nuclei with unprecedented precision.

The superheavy element with atomic number 117 was produced in the $$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{249}$$Bk fusion reaction using the gas-filled recoil separator TASCA at GSI in Germany. This result verified the previous result of the discovery of new element 117 reported by Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions in Russia, which makes certain the synthesis and discovery of element 117 in human history. On the other hand, the last nucleus in the $$alpha$$ decay chain from the element 117 was assigned to be the unknown nucleus $$^{266}$$Lr instead of the previously reported $$^{270}$$Db, and $$^{270}$$Db was found to be the $$alpha$$-decaying nucleus with very long half-life.

A focal-plane Si detector setup applied to the spectroscopy of the element 115 $$alpha$$-decay chains was reported. Results of the digital signal analysis for preamplifier signals and of the event-by-event $$alpha$$-energy loss correction analysis were presented. The detectors consist of five double-sided Si strip detectors (DSSSD) arranged as a box, and signals from one side of the detector at the bottom of the box were digitally processed. Energy losses of $$alpha$$ particles detected by two Si detectors at the bottom and a side differs event-by-event, because each $$alpha$$ particle passed through two dead layers with a certain tilted angle. By correcting for the energy loss of each $$alpha$$ event using the angle of the $$alpha$$-particle emission extracted from the detected positions, we succeeded in improving the $$alpha$$ energy resolution significantly.

Produced in the reaction of $$^{48}$$Ca beam with an $$^{243}$$Am target, thirty correlated $$alpha$$-decay chains were observed. Observed decay chains are consistent with a previously reported decay chain, which confirms the identification of the element 115. In addition, an $$alpha$$-photon coincidence measurement was performed, and $$gamma$$ rays as well as X-ray candidates were observed in this decay chain. The $$gamma$$-ray observation in the heaviest region of superheavy nuclei brings a big progress in the superheavy nuclear structure studies.

We report a resonant X-ray scattering study of the antiferromagnetic neptunium compounds NpCoGa$$_5$$ and NpRhGa$$_5$$. Large resonant signals of magnetic dipole character are observed below the N$'e$el temperatures. The signals at the Np edges confirm the behavior determined previously from neutron diffraction. On application of a magnetic field of 9 T along the [010] direction in NpRhGa$$_5$$, we observe a change in the population of different [110]-type domains. We also observe a magnetic dipole signal at the Ga &K& edge, similarly to the reported UGa$$_3$$ case, that can be interpreted within a semilocalized model as an orbital polarization of the Ga 4$$p$$ states induced via strong hybridization with the Np 5$$f$$ valence band. Quantitative analysis of the signal shows that the Ga dipole on the two different Ga sites follows closely the Np magnetic moment reorientation in NpRhGa$$_5$$. The ratios of the signals on the two inequivalent Ga sites are not the same for the different compounds.

Defects in electron-irradiated (3, 6 MeV) ZnO substrates were investigated using optical detection of magnetic response (ODMR). The shallow donor and the Zn vacancy were detected. In addition, several ODMR centers with S=$$frac{1}{2}$$ were also observed. Among these, LU3 and LU4 shows a behavior as recombination centers. After annealing at 400$$^{circ}$$C, both LU3 and LU4 still remain in ZnO substrates.

Relativistic energy projectile fragmentation of $$^{208}$$Pb has been used to produce a range of exotic nuclei. The nuclei of interest were studied by detecting delayed $$gamma$$ rays following the decay of isomeric states. Experimental information on the excited states of the neutron-rich $$^{204}$$Pt N=126 nucleus, following internal decay of two isomeric states, was obtained for the first time. In addition, decays from the previously reported isomeric $$I=27hbar$$ and $$I=(49/2)hbar$$ states in $$^{148}$$Tb and $$^{147}$$Gd, respectively, have been observed. These isomeric decays represent the highest discrete states observed to date following a prejectile fragmentation reaction, and opens up the possibilty of doing "high-spin physics" using this technique.

Optical detection of magnetic resonance (ODMR) was performed to investigate defects in ZnO irradiated with 3 MeV electrons at room temperature. As a result, the Zn vacancy and some other centers were detected by ODMR. The Zn vacancy and two other centers whish are labeled as LU3 and LU4, were also commonly observed in different types of as-grown ZnO. Therefore, it can be concluded that the both LU3 and LU4 might be related to intrinsic defects, and they act as dominating recombination centers in irradiated and as-grown ZnO.

The first results from the stopped beam RISING experimental campaign performed at the GSI laboratory in Darmstadt, Germany, are presented. RISING constitutes a major new experimental program in European nuclear structure physics research aimed at using relativistic energy (typically around 1 GeV per nucleon) projectile fragmentation reactions to populate nuclei with highly exotic proton-to-neutron ratios compared to the line of beta stability. In its high-efficiency stopped beam configuration, the RISING $$gamma$$-ray spectrometer consists of 105 individual germanium crystals which view a focal plane in which the exotic nuclei are brought to rest. Here, decays from metastable states with half-lives in the nano to milliseconds range can be observed. Results of initial commissioning experiments are also shown and details of the planned future experimental program are given.

This topical review presents results from neutron inelastic scattering experiments on single crystals of UPd$$_2$$Al$$_3$$. We present a detailed and complete characterization of the wave vector- and energy-dependent magnetization dynamics in UPd$$_2$$Al$$_3$$ as measured by neutron inelastic scattering primarily in the form of extensive surveys in energy-momentum space under a wide range of experimental conditions, and put our observations in context with data that has been published previously by two independent groups. This study yields unique insight into the low-temperature ground state, which exhibits a microscopic coexistence of antiferromagnetism and superconductivity, makingUPd$$_2$$Al$$_3$$ one of the most accessible heavy-fermion superconductors that can be fully characterized by neutron spectroscopy.

We report a resonant X-ray scattering study of antiferromagnetic uranium compounds U$$T$$Ga$$_5$$ ($$T$$=Ni, Pd, and Pt) at the Ga $$K$$-edge. A large resonant signal is observed below the N$'e$el temperatures. The azimuth dependence in both $$pi$$-$$pi'$$ and $$pi$$-$$sigma'$$ polarization channels establishes that the resonant signal has the symmetry of the magnetic dipole. This resonance with the band electrons is interpreted within a semi-localized model as an orbital polarization of the Ga $$4p$$ states induced through strong hybridization with U $$5f$$ valence level. These results demonstrate that resonant magnetic X-ray scattering at the anions, taken in combination with symmetry arguments, can be used to determine the configuration of the U $$5f$$ moments and provide information about the hybridization.
