The new element 112 was produced and identified unambiguously in an experiment at SHIP, GSI Darmstadt. Two decay chains of the isotope277112 were observed in irradiations of208Pb targets with70Zn projectiles of 344 MeV kinetic energy. The isotope decays by emission of α particles with a half-life of (240−90+430)µs. Two different α energies of (11,649±20) keV and (11,454±20) keV were measured for the two observed decays. The cross-section measured in three weeks of irradiations is (1.0−0.4+1.8… 
New superheavy element isotopes: ²⁴²Pu(⁴⁸Ca,5n) ²⁸⁵114.
The new, neutron-deficient, superheavy element isotope ²⁸⁵114 was produced in ⁴⁸Ca irradiations of ²⁴²Pu targets at a center-of-target beam energy of 256 MeV (E*=50  MeV). The α decay of ²⁸⁵114was
The reaction 48Ca + 248Cm → 296116* studied at the GSI-SHIP
The synthesis of element 116 in fusion-evaporation reactions of a 48Ca beam with radioactive 248Cm targets was studied at the velocity filter SHIP of GSI in Darmstadt. At excitation energies of the
Heavy and superheavy nuclei
The new elements 110, 111 and 112 were synthesized and unambiguously identified in experiments at SHIP. Due to strong shell effects the dominant decay mode is not fission, but emission of alpha
Discovery of new element, nihonium, and perspectives (PLENARY)
A new element 113 was searched by the reaction of Zn on Bi using a gas-filled recoil ion separator at the RIKEN linear accelerator facility. Totally three decay chains due to 113 were observed. The
Lightest isotope of Bh produced via the 209Bi(52Cr,n)260Bh reaction.
The lightest isotope of Bh was produced in the new 209Bi(52Cr,n)260Bh reaction at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's 88-Inch Cyclotron by observation of eight correlated alpha particle decay chains in the focal plane detector of the Berkeley Gas-Filled Separator.
At RIKEN Nishina Center, a series of experiments for studying the heaviest elements has been done by using a gas-filled recoil ion separator (GARIS). Isotopes of the 112th and the 113th elements,
Experimental survey of the production of α -decaying heavy elements in U238+Th232 reactions at 7.5–6.1 MeV/nucleon
The production of alpha particle decaying heavy nuclei in reactions of 7.5-6.1 MeV/nucleon $^{238}$U +$^{232}$Th has been explored using an in-beam detection array composed of YAP scintillators and
