Interests

Doing the basic research on nuclear physics. The research area is experimental study

of nuclear structure far from stability and nuclear high spin states. The experiments

are carried out at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, U.S.A, Lawrence Berkeley National

Laboratory, U.S.A, China Institute of Atomic Energy and China Academic Institute of

Modern Physics through international and national cooperations using heavy-ion accelerators and large detector arrays.Data

analysis is done in our group. The research contents include (1)New quasiparticle

bands and octupole deformation in A=110 and 140 neutron-rich region, (2)The properties of

the oblate deformation et al. in A=130 neutron-deficient region, and (3) Collective backbends

and shape phase transition in A=150 region. Besides, the programs of the  nuclear radiation

detector and the application of nuclear technology were also carried out. The research work has

been supported by the Major State Basic Research Development Program, the National Natural

Science Foundations of China, the Science Foundation for the Nuclear Industry of China, the Special

Program of Higher Education Science Foundation, and the University “985” foundations.
