## Abstract

Since the discovery of the breakdown of shell effects in very neutron‐rich N=20 and 28 nuclei, studies of the properties of nuclei far from stability have been of intense interest since they provide a unique opportunity to increase our understanding of nuclear interactions in extreme conditions and often challenge our theoretical models.

Deep‐inelastic processes can be used to populated high spin states of neutron‐rich nuclei. In the deep‐inelastic processes, an equilibration in N/Z between the target and projectile nuclei is achieved. For most heavy neutron‐rich target nuclei, the N/Z ratio is 1.5 – 1.6, while for the possible neutron‐rich sdf‐shell projectile it is about 1.2. Thus by using deep‐inelastic processes one can populate neutron‐rich nuclei around N=20 and N=28.

New results for the spectroscopy of neutron‐rich N=22 36Si and 37P are presented here.
