The helical orbit spectrometer, HELIOS, at Argonne National Laboratory has been developed to measure transfer reactions in inverse kinematics with good Q-value resolution. The technique is discussed alongside examples of measurements with medium-mass beams, the first exploration of reactions in the the forward hemisphere, and a future outlook. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
