Research Field(Keyword & Summary)
  1. Unstable nuclei

    The study of unstable nuclei involves the study of unstable nuclei that undergo radioactive decay. An unstable nucleus is one in which the number of protons and neutrons is out of balance and energetically unfavorable. Our research is being conducted to elucidate the nuclear physics by measuring nuclear properties such as half-life, decay mode, mass, and radius.
