The SCRIT (Self-Confining RI Ion Target) electron scattering facility was constructed to realize electron scattering off short-lived unstable nuclei at RIKEN in Japan.
Electron scattering is one of the most powerful and reliable methods for structure studies of atomic nuclei because of the well-understood interaction mechanism with the electromagnetic interaction. However, it has never been applied to short-lived unstable nuclei because of difficulties in preparing thick target, although it has been long-desired to investigate exotic features of unstable nuclei by electron scattering.
In this seminar, I will talk about the present status and future prospects of the SCRIT facility.
This seminar (~30’) will be followed by a short presentation (~15’) given by H. Wauke about recent results at SCRIT.
This seminar is given in the framework of the ESNT ( https://esnt.cea.fr )
