Title: Spectroscopy of neutron-rich {sup 37}P

Abstract

The excited states of the neutron-rich nucleus {sub 15}{sup 37}P{sub 22} have been populated in grazing reactions, using a beam of {sup 36}S ions (at 215 MeV) delivered onto a thin {sup 208}Pb target. Emitted {gamma} rays from excited projectile-like nuclei were detected using the CLARA array of 25 escape-suppressed Ge clover detectors in coincidence with reaction products detected and identified with the PRISMA magnetic spectrometer. A level scheme is presented for {sup 37}P together with proposed spin assignments. The level structure of {sup 37}P is discussed within the context of shell-model calculations by using an improved sdpf effective interaction.

  • We report on the first production and identification of two neutron-rich nuclei {sup 31}Ne and {sup 37}Mg. They were produced in the projectile fragmentation of an 80{ital A} MeV {sup 50}Ti beam on a {sup 181}Ta target, and were efficiently analyzed and identified through the fragment separator RIPS at RIKEN, by measuring the magnetic rigidity, time of flight, energy loss, and total kinetic energy. The particle stability of the new isotopes is discussed in comparison with various mass predictions. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
  • The yrast sequence of the neutron-rich dysprosium isotope {sup 168}Dy has been studied using multinucleon transfer reactions following collisions between a 460-MeV {sup 82}Se beam and an {sup 170}Er target. The reaction products were identified using the PRISMA magnetic spectrometer and the gamma rays detected using the CLARA HPGe-detector array. The 2{sup +} and 4{sup +} members of the previously measured ground-state rotational band of {sup 168}Dy have been confirmed and the yrast band extended up to 10{sup +}. A tentative candidate for the 4{sup +}->2{sup +} transition in {sup 170}Dy was also identified. The data on these nuclei andmore » on the lighter even-even dysprosium isotopes are interpreted in terms of total Routhian surface calculations and the evolution of collectivity in the vicinity of the proton-neutron valence product maximum is discussed.« less
  • The low-lying structure of {sup 188,190,192}W has been studied following {beta} decays of the neutron-rich mother nuclei {sup 188,190,192}Ta produced following the projectile fragmentation of a 1-GeV-per-nucleon {sup 208}Pb primary beam on a natural beryllium target at the GSI Fragment Separator. The {beta}-decay half-lives of {sup 188}Ta, {sup 190}Ta, and {sup 192}Ta have been measured, with {gamma}-ray decays of low-lying states in their respective W daughter nuclei, using heavy-ion {beta}-{gamma} correlations and a position-sensitive silicon detector setup. The data provide information on the low-lying excited states in {sup 188}W, {sup 190}W, and {sup 192}W, which highlight a change in nuclearmore » shape at {sup 190}W compared with that of lighter W isotopes. This evolution of ground-state structure along the W isotopic chain is discussed as evidence for a possible proton subshell effect for the A{approx}190 region and is consistent with maximization of the {gamma}-softness of the nuclear potential around N{approx}116.« less
