Gamma-ray spectroscopy at GANIL today and tomorrow

Özet/Abstract : Gamma-ray spectroscopy is intensively used at GANIL to measure low lying states in exotic nuclei on the neutron-rich as well as on the neutron-deficient side of the nuclear chart. To perform this physics program, the EXOGAM array consisting of hyper pure germanium detectors is routinely used. This detector has been designed to efficiently exploit the low intensity beams delivered by the first generation of facility producing and accelerating radioactive nuclei. After many years of operation using both stable and radioactive beams at GANIL, EXOGAM has been moved for six months at the ILL Grenoble to perform the spectroscopy of fission fragments produced in the cold fission of actinide targets. In parallel, a very significant upgrade of the electronics is going on which will multiply the capabilities of the array. An overview of the array will be given together with the ongoing electronics development. The physics program both at GANIL and at the ILL will be evoked. In addition SPIRAL2, a second generation ISOL facility, is under construction at GANIL. A brief overview of the future accelerator complex will be given and discussed.
