The nuclear structure of neutron rich Ne isotopes has been investigated at the recently commissioned Radioactive Ion Beam Factory (RIBF) at the RIKEN Nishina Center by means of inelastic scattering and knockout reactions. A cocktail beam of unstable nuclei around 32Ne was provided by the BigRIPS fragment separator and incident on a natural carbon target at energies ≈ 220 A MeV. Reaction products were identified with the Zero Degree Spectrometer and deexcitation γ-rays detected by the DALI2 array. The reported results demonstrate the potential for in-beam γ-ray experiments at the RIBF.
