Since 2001 Miniball has been operational at REX-ISOLDE (CERN) utilising segmented HPGe detectors to study nuclei from post-accelerated radioactive beams. Coulomb excitation has been used as the main tool throughout this period, but in recent years the availability of a system for measuring transfer reactions has extended the possibilities of Miniball. With this setup it is even possible to perform transfer reactions using a radioactive beam and a radioactive tritium target.
The physics focus has concentrated on two main topics: the evolution of shell structure away from stability and the phenomenon of shape coexistence.
In this seminar, a few of the highlights of this decade of activity are presented together with an outlook for the future.
