The existence of the dynamical dipole mode in the 192Pb composite system was investigated, through the study of its prompt γ decay, employing the 40Ca+152Sm and 48Ca+144Sm reactions at Elab=11 and 10.1 MeV/nucleon, respectively. The γ-rays and light charged particles were detected in coincidence with evaporation residues and fission fragments. First results of this experiment show that the dynamical dipole mode survives in collisions involving heavier mass reaction partners than those studied previously. As a fast cooling mechanism on the fusion path, the prompt dipole γ radiation could be of interest for the synthesis of super-heavy elements through "hot" fusion reactions. Furthermore, by using radioactive beams and the prompt γ radiation as a probe we could get information on the symmetry energy at sub-saturation densities.
