Title: A Systematic Study in the Region of N=86-98

Abstract

In this work a systematic study was performed in the region of N=86-98 by means of Total Routhian Surface (TRS) calculations. TRS calculations are based on Woods-Saxon potential in the framework of cranked shell model (CSM) and Bogolyubov-Strutinsky approach. The deformed mean field is capable of making predictions on nuclear deformations and other observables like moments of inertia and quadrupole moments. These observables are calculated for the region of interest and compared with the experimental data. The regime, in which the TRS approach can be used successfully, covers of neutron number N{>=}88. In particular these nuclei which are assigned to be situated at a point of phase transition, having X(5) symmetry can be described by mean field calculation.

  • Diffusive shock acceleration by the shockwaves in supernova remnants (SNRs) is widely accepted as the dominant source for Galactic cosmic rays. However, it is unknown what determines the maximum energy of accelerated particles. The surrounding environment could be one of the key parameters. The SNR RCW 86 shows both thermal and nonthermal X-ray emission with different spatial morphologies. These emission originate from the shock-heated plasma and accelerated electrons respectively, and their intensities reflect their density distributions. Thus, the remnant provides a suitable laboratory to test possible association between the acceleration efficiency and the environment. In this paper, we present resultsmore » of spatially resolved spectroscopy of the entire remnant with Suzaku . The spacially resolved spectra are well reproduced with a combination of a power-law for synchrotron emission and a two-component optically thin thermal plasma, corresponding to the shocked interstellar medium (ISM) with kT of 0.3–0.6 keV and Fe-dominated ejecta. It is discovered that the photon index of the nonthermal component becomes smaller when decreasing the emission measure of the shocked ISM, where the shock speed has remained high. This result implies that the maximum energy of accelerated electrons in RCW 86 is higher in the low-density and higher shock speed regions.« less
  • High-spin states of the [ital N]=49,50 nuclei [sup 85,86]Kr have been investigated via the reactions [sup 82]Se([sup 7]Li,[ital p]3[ital n]) or [sup 82]Se([sup 7]Li,[ital p]2[ital n]), respectively, using 32 MeV [sup 7]Li ions. In order to suppress [gamma] rays arising from pure neutron evaporation the measurements of angular distributions and relative excitation functions of the [gamma] rays as well as [gamma][gamma] coincidences have been performed in particle-[gamma] coincidence modes. Additional information on excited states in [sup 85]Kr has been obtained in connection with the [sup 82]Se([alpha],[ital n]) reaction at beam energies between 13 and 21 MeV. The level scheme ofmore » [sup 85]Kr has been extended by a new sequence of high-spin states with excitation energies up to 4.8 MeV and tentative spins up to (23/2) that is built on top of the 17/2[sup +] [mu]s isomer at 1991.8 keV. For [sup 86]Kr a new level scheme of high-spin states with excitation energies up to 7.9 MeV and tentative spins up to (12) has been observed for the first time. The level sequences observed in [sup 85,86]Kr are interpreted on the basis of shell-model calculations in the configuration space 1[ital p][sub 3/2], 0[ital f][sub 5/2], 1[ital p][sub 1/2], and 0[ital g][sub 9/2] for the protons and 0[ital g][sub 9/2] or 0[ital g][sub 9/2], 1[ital d][sub 5/2] for the neutrons in [sup 85]Kr or [sup 86]Kr, respectively. The inclusion of neutron-core excitations in the calculations for [sup 86]Kr results in a remarkably improved agreement between experimental and calculated level energies. In this way considerable contributions of neutron-core excitations are strongly suggested for the positive-parity yrast states with spins 7[h bar], 9[h bar], and 10[h bar].« less
  • We report the results of Raman measurements performed on polycrystalline samples of superconducting Tl/sub 2/Ca/sub n//sub -1/Ba/sub 2/Cu/sub n/O/sub 4+2//sub n/ (n = 1,2,3) with well-characterized transport, magnetic, and structural properties. The room-temperature first-order Raman spectra of polycrystalline samples of predominantly Tl/sub 2/Ba/sub 2/CuO/sub 6/, Tl/sub 2/CaBa/sub 2/Cu/sub 2/O/sub 8/, and Tl/sub 2/Ca/sub 2/Ba/sub 2/Cu/sub 3/O/sub 10/ phases, with respective superconducting transition temperatures of 10, 110, and 125 K display a systematic variation with the number of CuO/sub 2/ layers and great similarities with the Raman spectrum of YBa/sub 2/Cu/sub 3/O/sub 7/. Comparison with Raman spectra of the impurity phasemore » candidates BaCO/sub 3/, BaO/sub 2/, BaCuO/sub 2/, CaCuO/sub 2/, Tl/sub 2/O/sub 3/, and TlCa/sub 5/Cu/sub 6/O/sub x/ allows identification of intrinsic Raman modes of the superconducting phases. Factor group analysis of the three body-centered tetragonal structures space group 14/mmm, yields the mode classifications and the atoms involved in the modes of A/sub 1//sub g/ and B/sub 1//sub g/ symmetry corresponding to c-axis motion that produce the strongest modulation of the polarizability. The systematic variation between the spectra of the three phases and comparison with the well-characterized YBa/sub 2/Cu/sub 5/O/sub x/ Raman spectrum suggests mode assignments for the high-frequency modes of A/sub 1//sub g/ and B/sub 1//sub g/ symmetry involving oxygen motion.« less
