Under the umbrella of the CHARISSA collaboration, the group is
investigating clustering phenomena in s-d shell nuclei. Four
universities are involved in the collaboration, namely
Surrey, Birmingham, Oxford and York. More details about CHARISSA can
be found on
the CHARISSA page at the University of Oxford.

The TIARA array is a major new device,
presently under construction. It
is aimed at the study of particle-bound states,
and exploits the combination of charged particle techniques (a silicon
array plus the VAMOS spectrometer) with
state-of-the art gamma-ray detection (EXOGAM).
