Abstract
In an experiment at the SISSI/LISE3 facility of GANIL, the most proton-rich zinc isotopes Zn-55.56 have been observed for the first time. The experime nt was performed using a high-intensity Ni-58 beam at 74.5 MeV/nucleon impi nging on a nickel target. The identification of Zn-55.56 opens the way to Z n-54, a good candidate for two-proton radioactivity according to theoretica l predictions.
