Title: Electromagnetic Moments of Exotic Nuclei: Recent Studies

Abstract

State-of-the-art studies of electromagnetic moments of exotic nuclei in experiments with radioactive beams are presented. These include first results on the 19/2+ isomer in 127Sn, which was populated in a relativistic fragmentation reaction within the g-RISING campaign at GSI, Darmstadt, Germany, and the first measurement of a nuclear quadrupole moment of an isomeric state in fragmentation reaction, that of the 9/2+ isomer in 61Fe, which was performed at GANIL, Caen, France. Results from experiments to measure the electromagnetic moments in transfer reactions are also discussed, as well as the perspectives to utilize this technique in experiments with post-accelerated ISOL beams in inverse kinematics.

  • Fast beams of radioactive isotope (RI) have been used for nuclear spectroscopy at RIKEN since 1990. Various direct-reaction experiments have been performed at intermediate-energies in the reversed kinematics to study structures of nuclei very far from the stability valley. Several examples of recent results on neutron-rich nuclei around N=20 and carbon isotopes are presented. The RIKEN RI Beam Factory, which will have the first beam in the end of 2006, will greatly extend the region of study to more exotic and heavier nuclei.
  • No abstract prepared.
  • Nuclear moments have been measured for a few tens of light unstable nuclei located very far from the line of stability using beta-NMR methods and spin-polarized RI beams. The obtained values of those moments provided indispensable information to reveal/disentangle unique properties of exotic nuclei.
  • The Coupled Cyclotron Facility at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University provides a large variety of new isotopes previously inaccessible and others at rates sufficient for in-beam spectroscopy. This talk presents some of our recent results elucidating the structure of exotic nuclei.After a general overview of scientific highlights from the first two years of operation particular results from several in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy experiments in the vicinities of neutron numbers N=16, N=20, N=28 in the {pi}(sd) shell around 56Ni will be discussed. Inelastic scattering experiments with gamma-ray detection on light and heavy targets have determined specific transition matrixmore » elements and excited state energies. One- and two-particle nucleon knockout reactions were used to investigate the wave functions of specific states and to deduce corresponding spectroscopic factors.« less
  • Alpha decay is one of the two main decay modes of the heaviest nuclei, (SHE), and constitutes one of the dominant decay modes of highly neutron deficient medium mass nuclei ('exotics'). Thus identifying and characterizing the alpha decay chains form a crucial part of the identification of SHE. We report the extension of the previously developed method for the detailed and systematic investigation of the reliability of the three main extant analytical formulae of alpha decay half-lives: the generalized liquid drop model based formula of Royer et al. (FR), the Sobiczewski modified semi-empirical Viola-Seaborg formula (VSS) and the recent phenomenologicalmore » formula of Sobiczewski and Parkhomenko (SP)« less
