S3: Pushing spectroscopy forward

Abstract : Spectroscopy in the region of high masses is performed at the limits of the existing detection systems. Observation limits were recently pushed down to 11 nb with the prompt gamma-ray spectroscopy of 246Fm and 256Rf. The very high intensity beams that will be provided by the new SPIRAL2 LINAC accelerator, combined with the high transmission and selectivity power of the Super Separator Spectrometer S3, will provide an unprecedented access to nuclei with cross-sections in the nanobarn region. Using the latest technologies, the S3 Collaboration is designing a detection system based on recoil-decay tagging that will enable a major step in these physics cases.
