At HIL, the experiment aiming to study the shape coexistence and octupole correlations in the light Xe, Cs and Ba nuclei was performed. The experiment was proposed by Dr Petrache from University Paris-Saclay and IJClab. The experiment employed the NEEDLE (NEDA+EAGLE) set-up coupled with the PLUNGER device of Cologne University and lasted two weeks. We thank all the researchers and students from the Paris-Saclay, IJClab, the University of Cologne, IFJ PAN of Cracow, the Institute of Modern Physics of Lanzhou, Simon Fraser University, Atomki, HIL and the cyclotron’s operators for their fundamental contribution.
The project was partially supported by the EURO-LABS (EUROpean Laboratories for Accelerator Based Sciences) grant.
