Abstract: We report on the first use of post-accelerated radioactive isomeric beams. Long-lived isomeric states in Cu-68 and Cu-70 have been produced and separated at ISOLDE, CERN. Subsequently they were post-accelerated to 2.86 MeV/u and sent to a target in the center of the MINIBALL spectrometer, used for the detection of the gamma-rays of interest. The preliminary results from the Coulomb excitation of the I-pi = 6(-), 1(+) states in Cu-68 and the I-pi = 6(-) one in Cu-70, compared to a large-scale shell model calculations, hint the importance of the excitations across the Z = 28 gap for the understanding of the nuclear structure in the neutron-rich N = 40 region.
