Current Research in more detail

Nuclear structure at high spins; Superdeformed nuclei; Nuclear shapes via g-ray and light charged-particle spectrometry; High-spin phenomena in nuclei; Structure of very neutron deficient nuclei; High spin investigations of transuranium nuclei.
Design and construction of the Washington University " Microball" - a 4p multi-detector array operated in conjunction with Gammasphere.
Design and construction of a very high efficiency  Neutron Detector Shell for Gammasphere for studies of neutron defficient nuclei.
Design and construction of HERCULES  (High Efficiency Residue Counter Under a Lot of Elastic Scattering), a high efficiency array for studies of transuranium nuclides to be used with Gammasphere. HERCULES already had a succesful test run.
Nuclei Nuclear reactions: compound nuclear reactions, nuclear reaction mechanisms via 4p detection of light and intermediate mass fragments.
