In order to understand the structure of a nucleus, apart from establishing the interaction between its components, it is necessary to determine the special arrangement of the nucleons. Presently our knowledge about the structure of nuclei is mostly limited to systems close to the valley of stability, or nuclei with a deficiency of neutrons, which can be produced in fusion‐evaporation reactions with stable beams and stable targets. Main perspectives in nuclear structure are based on the availability of radioactive nuclear beams as well as on high intensity beams of stable ions. In particular high intensity beams of stable ions can open new avenues for the nuclear structure research both for proton and neutron rich systems. Deep‐inelastic and multi‐nucleon transfer reactions can be used to populate nuclei with large neutron excess. The development of a γ‐ray detection system capable of tracking the location of the energy deposited at every γ‐ray interaction point will also provide an unparallel level of detection sensitivity opening new perspectives for nuclear structure studies.
