At the other end of the nuclear landscape, in very heavy nuclei, the situation is quite different. The nuclei are more classical in nature with higher level densities and liquid-drop-like properties strongly influenced by the ever-increasing Coulomb energy. However, the level densities are far from that of a Fermi gas, and gaps and bunching in the sequence of quantum states still modulate all observables. Information on the sequence and spacing of levels near the Fermi surface is sparse, especially in the domain of very heavy nuclei with Z > 100. However, this information is essential for understanding binding energies, decay rates, shapes, and pairing of the very heaviest systems. It is a convenient trick of nature that allows us to use deformation and rotation in Z ~ 100 nuclei, where production cross-sections are quite large, in order to populate some of the highest quantum states known in nuclei and then predict shell gaps in the true “Super Heavy” domain with Z > 120. Locating and identifying these states, and learning about correlations in these very heavy systems is the second thrust of our work. We have pioneered using actinide targets and multi-nucleon transfers to reach key states of interest. We have been using high-K isomer investigations and nucleon alignment techniques to learn about the deformed Nilsson states and their crossings. A key current issue is the influence of the shell gaps on pairing correlations which are very important, ill-understood, and far from constant across the region.
