Isobaric Analog States as a Tool for Spectroscopy of Exotic Nuclei
Spectroscopy of neutron rich exotic isotopes via their isobaric analog states (IAS) in less exotic nuclei is discussed. Several different experimental techniques, which can be applied to search for IAS of exotic isotopes, are described. Successful application of these techniques to the studies of heavy helium isotopes7He and 9He led to the observation of unknown IAS in 7Li and 9Li. Spectroscopic information for these states were obtained, and implication of these findings to the structure of 7,9He is considered.
