Collinear laser spectroscopy of short-lived nuclides
Our division is involved in the COLLAPS experiment at ISOLDE /CERN in Geneva, which is
aimed at the investigation of ground state properties of exotic, short lived nuclei,
such as spins, electro-magnetic moments and charge radii by means of collinear laser
These observables contribute widely to our understanding of the nuclear force – they give valuable information about the coupling between nucleons, about symmetry of the nuclear wave-functions and thus about the symmetry of the nuclear interaction itself.
