The identification of six new elements within the last 15 years and with proton numbers, Z = 113–118 has transformed the heavy element field. However, one key piece of information on these nuclei remains unmeasured: their proton and mass numbers, A. At Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the heavy element group has undertaken a program to study these new elements to perform experiments aimed at measuring the Z and A.Here, an overview of recent experiments aimed towards identifying the Z of SHE, and the prospects for Z and A identification experiments at LBNL are presented.
