Over the last decade, we have performed in‐beam experiments using to measure excited states in proton‐rich Au, Hg, Tl and Pb isotopes. In these studies, the use of the FMA is essential in order to differentiate evaporation residues from the large fission background which dominates the reaction cross‐section. In addition, we have found that using near‐symmetric reactions at bombarding energies near the Coloumb barrier is beneficial in performing these studies. By keeping the bombarding energy low, fission is minimized and the reaction products are concentrated in only a few channels. New results have recently been obtained using the reaction to study shape co‐existence in via the lp evaporation channel. In addition, we have measured the total γ‐ray energy and multiplicity associated with the surviving compund system, following the fusion reaction,
