The decay of Re, which lies near the boundary between the regions of predicted prolate and oblate deformations, has been investigated using the KEK Isotope Separation System (KISS) in RIKEN Nishina Center. The ground state of Re has been assigned = based on the observed feedings and deduced log values towards the and states in Os, which is known as a typical -soft nucleus. The shape transition from axial symmetry to axial asymmetry in the Re isotopes is discussed from the viewpoint of single-particle structure using the nuclear Skyrme-Hartree-Fock model.

By studying the decay of the radioactive nuclei Co and Co produced at RIBF, RIKEN, the low-lying excited states in Ni were studied for the first time up to spin 8. These states originate from the valence neutrons occupying the orbit, and permit to investigate the seniority quantum number. The data reveal that the seniority isomerism of the 8 state disappears, and this phenomenon is explained by comparison with shell model calculations and the influence of spherical doubly-magic Ni.

The level schemes of neutron-rich isotopes Co and Ni were populated in the decay of Fe and studied using -delayed -ray spectroscopy of the 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 decay of the 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.

The levels in Sn populated from the decay of 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 Sn are expected to have configurations dominated by the neutron (=0) and (=2) single-particle states, respectively. Consequently, these states should be connected by a somewhat slow -forbidden transition. Using fast-timing spectroscopy we have measured the half-life of the 1/2 315.3-keV state, = 19(10) ps, which corresponds to a moderately fast transition. Shell-model calculations using the CD-Bonn effective interaction, with standard effective charges and factors, predict a 4-ns half-life for this level. We can reconcile the shell-model calculations to the measured value by the renormalization of the effective operator for neutron holes.

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

The decays of Mn have been measured at the RIBF facility at RIKEN using the EURICA spectrometer combined with an active stopper consisting of a stack of Si detectors. Half-lives and -delayed neutron emission probabilities have been extracted for these decays, together with first experimental information on excited states populated in 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.

An exploratory experiment was performed at REX-ISOLDE CERN to test the potential of cluster-transfer reactions at the Coulomb barrier as a mechanism to explore the structure of exotic neutron-rich nuclei. The transfer of triton and alpha particles in a reaction of a beam of Rb onto a Li target were studied through particle- coincidence measurements. The results indicate that such cluster transfer reactions can be an efficient method to investigate the structure of neutron-rich nuclei at medium-high excitation energies and spins.
