Title: Low-energy phonon structure of {sup 150}Sm

Abstract

The low-lying decay scheme of {sup 150}Sm is studied through the (n,{gamma}) reaction. Precise energies as well as lifetimes measured with the gamma-ray-induced Doppler technique provide important structural information. A comparison with the predictions of interacting boson model calculations confirms that this nucleus is very close to the phase transition between spherical and quadrupole axial symmetric shapes, lying just prior to the critical point on the spherical side of the transition.
