Studies of the structure and stability of nuclei with extreme isospin values provide new insights into every aspect of the nuclear many-body problem. In neutron-rich nuclei far from the valley of β-stability, in particular, new shell structures occur as a result of the modification of the effective nuclear potential. Neutron density distributions become very diffuse and the phenomenon of the evolution of the neutron skin and, in some cases, the neutron halo have been observed. The weak binding… CONTINUE READING
