Direct reactions such as nucleon transfer and fast nucleon removal are unique to probe the nuclear shell structure within the shell model formalism. These reactions have been extensively tested and used in stable nuclei studies. During this presentation, standard techniques to extract structure information from measured cross sections will be recalled. Recent results obtained at the NSCL and SPIRAL about the applicability of reaction models to nucleon removal from unstable nuclei will be discussed.
As an outlook, the MINOS device, a thick hydrogen target coupled to a compact TPC for in-beam gamma spectroscopy currently under developments and to be used at RIKEN from 2014, will be presented.
