Nuclear Structure Physics at Yale and Beyond

  • C. W. Beausang


Some of the new experimental equipment, available at the Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory including the YRAST Ball array and some of its auxiliary detectors are described. Aspects of the nuclear structure physics program at the WNSL is reviewed. Several new results are presented including the investigation of low lying 0+ states in 154 Sm and the observation of a possible new magnetic rotational band in 205Rn is reported.
