Title: High-spin octupole yrast levels in {sup 216}Rn{sub 86}

Abstract

The yrast level structure of {sup 216}Rn has been studied using in-beam spectroscopy {alpha}-{gamma}-{gamma} coincidence techniques through the {sup 208}Pb({sup 18}O, 2{alpha}2n) reaction in the 91-93 MeV energy range, using the 8{pi} GASP-ISIS spectrometer at Legnaro. The level scheme of {sup 216}Rn resulting from this study shows alternating parity bands only above a certain excitation energy. From this result, the lightest nucleus showing evidence of octupole collectivity at low spins is still {sup 216}Fr, thereby defining the lowest-mass corner for this kind of phenomenon as N{>=}129 and Z{>=}87.
