Abstract in different language: The MASHA facility [1–3] was developed as a high precision mass-spectrometer for heavy and super heavy elements with masses up to 450 a.m.u. It uses ISOL (Isotope Separation On-Line) method. Its unique properties opens great prospective for the investigation of neutron-rich nuclei produced in multinucleon transfer reactions. Mainly nuclei near the neutron N = 126 and N = 152 shell closures are of great interest. This region of nuclei is not so far thoroughly enough investigated while its research has direct relation to the synthesis of super heavy elements. As is known the island of stability close to super heavy elements (Z = 112–118) exists due to the shell effects in nuclei. More detailed investigation of these shell effects can greatly help in the synthesis of next super heavy elements. Heavy neutron rich radon isotopes were produced in the multinucleon transfer reaction 40Ar + 232Th at Flerov Laboratory of Nuclear Reactions, Dubna. Radon isotopes with given masses were detected using two types of detectors: a multi-strip well-type detector (made in Canberra) and a position-sensitive quantum counting hybrid pixel detector of the Timepix type [4]. The latter detector has an array of 256x256 square pixels each with a pitch size of 55 um for the full sensitive area 14x14mm2. Radon isotopes implanted into the detector emit then alpha and beta particles until they reach the stable or long-lived isotopes at the end of their decay chains. The positions of radon isotopes, the tracks, times and energies of the beta particles were measured and analyzed. New software for the particle recognition and data analysis of the results obtained from the experiment was developed and used. It has been proven that MASHA + Timepix setup is a powerful instrument for investigation of neutron-rich isotopes far from stability limits.
