Title: Specific features of the nuclear drip line in the region of light nuclei

Abstract

The problem of the drip line in the region of the even isotopes {sup 4-12}He, {sup 14-44}O, and {sup 38-80}Ca with respect to the emission of one or two neutrons is studied in the Hartree-Fock approximation by using the SLy4 and Ska effective Skyrme forces. The 'stability peninsula' in the vicinity of {sup 40}O is found.

  • This report details the status of an experimental research programme which has studied isomeric states in the mass 130-160 region of the nuclear chart. Several new isomers have been established and characterised near the proton drip line using a recoil isomer tagging technique at the University of Jyvaeskylae, Finland. The latest experiments have been performed with a modified setup where the standard GREAT focal-plane double-sided silicon-strip detector was changed to a dual multi-wire proportional-counter arrangement. This new setup has improved capability for short-lived isomer studies where high focal-plane rates can be tolerated. The results of key recent experiments for nucleimore » situated above ({sup 153}Yb,{sup 152}Tm) and below ({sup 136}Pm,{sup 142}Tb) the N = 82 shell gap were presented along with an interpretation for the isomers. Finally, the future prospects of the technique, using an isomer-tagged differential-plunger setup, were discussed. This technique will be capable of establishing the deformation of the states above the isomers and will aid in the process of assigning underlying single-particle configurations to the isomeric states.« less
  • A fusion-evaporation experiment has been performed with a SPIRAL {sup 76}Kr radioactive beam in order to study the deformation of rare-earth nuclei near the proton drip-line. The experimental setup consisted in the EXOGAM {gamma}-array, coupled to the light-charged particles (LCP) DIAMANT detector and to the VAMOS heavy-ion spectrometer. The difficulties inherent to such measurements are enlightened. The coupling between EXOGAM and DIAMANT has been used to decrease the huge background caused by the radioactivity of the beam. It further permits assigning new {gamma}-ray transitions to specific residual nuclei. A {gamma}-ray belonging to the {sup 130}Pm level scheme has thus beenmore » observed for the first time.« less
  • By adopting a finite square-well potential, the analytic expressions of dB(E1)/dE{sub x} for the cases of l{sub h}=0{yields}l{sub c}=1,l{sub h}=1{yields}l{sub c}=0,l{sub h}=1{yields}l{sub c}=2, and l{sub h}=2{yields}l{sub c}=1 are derived in the distorted wave approximation (DWA). From these analytic expressions it can be seen clearly that enhanced low-lying B(E1) strengths in nuclei near drip-line mainly come from the orbits with small binding energy and small angular momentum. Comparing the results of analytic expressions with the experimental dB(E1)/dE{sub x} data, the spectroscopic factors of the 2s{sub 1/2} state in {sup 11}Be were deduced as 0.92, 0.87, and 0.83 for the well depthsmore » U{sub 0}=50 MeV, 40 MeV, and 33 MeV, respectively.« less
  • Based on the {beta}-NMR method with spin-polarized radioactive-isotope beams, we have been conducting a series of experiments at RIKEN for the measurement the magnetic moments and electric quadrupole moments of light unstable nuclei. From the systematic measurements of nuclear moments in the unstable nuclear region, the effects of the neutron excess on the structure have been discussed. In the {mu}-moment measurements of the nitrogen isotopes, the outward-directed deviation of {mu}(17N) and {mu}(19N) from the Schmidt value were observed. In the case of Q-moment, our experimental data show large discrepancy from the shell-model predictions if neutron and proton effective charges aremore » assumed to be constant. By introducing an isospin dependence to the effective charges, the observed Q-moments of boron isotopes can be explained. We also applied the result of {mu}-moment measurements to the I{pi} assignment. Owing to the large difference of {mu} values among expected I{pi} candidates, I{pi}(17C)=3/2+ has been definitely assigned.« less
