The Isol-France collaboration started in 2017. This collaboration aims at coordinating the scientific strategy at a national level of the low energy nuclear physics community. It’s managed by the Bureau Isol-France (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The scientific objectives of this community are included in the Long Range Plane 2016/2017 of NuPECC. The fundamental properties measurements (i.e. masses, static electromagnetic moments, mean square charge radii and beta decay) allow the community to address the big general questions of nuclear physics.
Nevertheless, the performances of the ISOL technique coupled to the outstanding experimental devices developed and to be developed (i.e. ion traps, laser spectroscopy set-ups and decay stations, ...), allow to address the following specific questions among others:
1- How does the nuclear interaction evolve with the Isospin? What is the isospin dependence on the spin-orbit interaction? How do the shell closures evolve far away from the stability?
2- How to explain the collective phenomena from individual nucleon interaction? Can it be possible to describe the effects of spherical mean field and correlations beyond mean field?
3- Is there physics beyond the Standard Model?
4- What is the origin of the elements of the universe? What are the nuclei relevant for the astrophysical process? How the nuclear properties affect the nucleosynthesis models?
5- What is the impact of nuclear physics on other disciplines?
6- Questions related to Heavy and Super Heavy elements
