The spallation and fragmentation reactions of Xe induced by proton, deuteron and carbon at 168 MeV/nucleon were studied at RIKEN Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory via the inverse kinematics technique. The cross sections of the lighter products are larger in the carbon-induced reactions due to the higher total kinetic energy of carbon. The energy dependence was investigated by comparing the newly obtained data with previous results obtained at higher reaction energies. The experimental data were compared with the results of SPACS, EPAX, PHITS and DEURACS calculations. These data serve as benchmarks for the model calculations.

The neutron-rich nucleus Ar is produced by the fragmentation reactions of Ca, Sc, and Ti at the RIBF facility in RIKEN, and its deexcited rays are observed for the first time. The first level in Ar is identified to lie at 1178(18)keV from the most intense -ray spectra. This experimental data, together with the systematics of the levels for surrounding nuclei, is analyzed with large-scale shell-model calculations. Consequently, the sub-shell gap in Ar is equivalent to that of Ca, thus making the level in Ar higher than that of Ar. The shell-model calculation also predicts that the sub-shell gap enhances in going from Ca to Ar, which will be verified by forthcoming experiments for Ar.

Recent years have witnessed a growing interest in the use of organic radicals as building blocks for bistable materials, i.e. materials that exist in two inter-exchangeable phases under identical thermodynamic conditions. The neutral radical TTTA is a prominent dithiazolyl-based compound because of its spin transition with a hysterisis nature near the room temperature. From ab initio molecular dynamics simulations, it has been evident that this phase transition is driven by the pair exchange dynamics of molecular stacking units accompanied by a significant gain of vibrational entropy.
