Title: Prompt and delayed spectroscopy of At 203 : Observation of a shears band and a 29 / 2 + isomeric state

Abstract

Using fusion-evaporation reactions, a gas-filled recoil separator, recoil-gating technique and recoil-isomer decay tagging technique we have extended the level scheme of 203At(N=118) significantly. We have observed an isomeric [τ=14.1(3)μs] state with a spin and parity of 29/2 +. The isomeric state is suggested to originate from the π(h 9/2)Ⓧ|| 202Po;11 > coupling, and it is depopulated through 286 keV E2 and 366 keV E3 transitions. Additionally, we have observed a cascade of magnetic-dipole transitions which is suggested to be generated by the shears mechanism.
