- Critical analysis of the Berkeley claim for the discovery of element 118 with the tools of statistical mathematics [Eur. Phys. J. A 8 (2000) 141]

- Systematic investigation of fragment element distributions in low-energy fission with relativistic secondary beams [Nucl. Phys. A 665 (2000) 221]

- First evidence for the absorption of unpaired protons by the heavy fission fragment [Nucl. Phys. A 634 (1998) 89]

- Observation of "negative friction" in mid-peripheral relativistic heavy-ion colllisions [Phys. Rev. Lett. 90 (2003) 212302]

- Evidence for the stable position of fission channels in proton number [Nucl. Phys. A 802 (2008) 12]
