Title: New findings for mixed-symmetry states

Abstract

This report summarizes experiments performed on 164Dy using photon scattering techniques. The scissors mode in 164Dy has been reinvestigated using unpolarized photons from bremsstrahlung and polarized photons from a free electron laser. The current experiments lead to the observation of a new decay mode of the scissors mode in well-deformed rotors.

  • The global correlation in the observed variation with mass number of the {ital E}2 and summed {ital M}1 transition strengths is examined for rare-earth nuclei. It is shown that a theory of correlated {ital S} and {ital D} fermion pairs with a simple pairing plus quadrupole interaction leads naturally to this universality. Thus a unified and quantitative description emerges for low-lying quadrupole and dipole strengths. {copyright} {ital 1995} {ital The} {ital American} {ital Physical} {ital Society}.
  • The experimental data on positive parity, low-lying levels of the even ruthenium isotopes {sup 98--114}Ru have been analyzed in the framework of the IBA-2 model, with the aim of identifying states having a large mixed-symmetry component. Energies, static and transition electric quadrupole and magnetic dipole moments as well as mixing and branching ratios of the relevant levels have been considered. It appears that the properties of all low-lying levels in these isotopes, for which the comparison between experiment and theory is possible, can be satisfactorily described by the standard IBA-2 model, provided proper account is taken of the presence atmore » low energy of states having a mixed-symmetry character. It seems possible to identify, in each isotope, a few states having such a character, the lowest ones being the 2{sup +}{sub 3} and 3{sup +}{sub 1} levels. Some indications for the presence above the 3{sup +}{sub 1} level of a band of states having {ital J}{sup {pi}}=5{sup +}{sub 1},7{sup +}{sub 1},9{sup +}{sub 1} and a comparable degree of mixed symmetry are pointed out for the heavier nuclei of the chain.« less
  • An analysis of low-lying collective states in {sup 110,112,114}Cd has been performed within the framework of the interacting proton-neutron boson model. The influence of model parameters on level schemes and electromagnetic properties has been investigated, in particular, as far as the breaking of {ital F}-spin symmetry is concerned. The 2{sub 3}{sup +} state is suggested as a relatively pure {ital F}={ital F}{sub max}{minus}1 ( mixed-symmetry'') state in the three isotopes.
  • The study of electric quadrupole transitions from the ground state into symmetric states and into states of mixed symmetry in the deformed nucleus /sup 156/Gd by inelastic electron scattering has been used to derive effective neutron and proton boson charges for the E2 operator in the framework of the interacting-boson model. The values for e/sub ..pi../ and e/sub ..nu../ differ at most by 30% in the rotational limit.
