Mon 29 - Tues 30th March 2003
The first meeting to discuss the physics aims of the RISING STOPPED BEAM
campaign will be held at the University of Surrey on 29-30 March 2003.
The aim of this workshop is to provide a framework for the physics proposals
for the use of the RISING gamma-ray array in conjunction with exotic ions
produced following projectile fragmentation and fission, which are stopped
at the final focal plane of the Fragment Separator (FRS) at GSI.
It is anticipated that the physics areas of interest will include decays from exotic isomeric states; the use of isomer spectroscopy to determine the structure of nuclei with highly exotic neutron-to-proton ratios; beta-delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy of exotic nuclei along the r-process waiting point paths for N=50 and N=82; measurements of nuclear moments; fast-timing (BaF2) measurements of the transitions rates of excited states fed following isomeric/beta decay; and fine structure in alpha and proton emission.
The meeting will discuss the potential instrumentation needs for such a campaign, such as active stoppers for alpha, proton and beta tagging.
It is hoped that the meeting will provide a platform for scientific proposals to be submitted to the GSI-EA sometime in mid-late 2004 with the plan of running the first experiments towards the end of 2005.
Accomodation for up to 30 delegates has been pre-booked on site at the University of Surrey campus in Guildford at cost of 38 pounds (~55 EUROS) for an en-suite room and 28 pounds (~40 EUROS) for a room with a shared bathroom. Both prices include breakfast on the morning of the 30th March.
Other, non-university local accomodation can also be booked directly and information on this can be obtained using the following web-site
The University of Surrey at Guildford is in easy reach of both Heathrow and Gatwick airports and also has excellent train links to London via Waterloo Station (which is useful for visitors travelling from mainland europe via the EUROSTAR). Further information on how to get to Guildford by car, air or train can be found at the following web-site
Short (~10 minute), contributions on potential physics areas of interest are encouraged. The meeting will also provide a forum for an update on the initial results of the first FAST BEAM RISING CAMPAIGN.
If you are intending to come to the meeting, please fill out the following reply slip and e-mail it to the Paddy Regan, the Stopped Beam Campaign Physics Co-ordinator at
A slide report from the initial meeting to discuss physics aspects with stopped beams from fragmentation reactions which was held in Goettingen in 2001 can be downloaded from the web at
see you in Guildford,
Paddy Regan and Peter Reiter
