Title: The new neutron rich nuclei

Abstract

Using HF+BCS method with Skyrme forces we analyze the neutron drip line. It is shown that around magic and new magic numbers the drip line may form stability peninsulas. It is shown that the location of these peninsulas does not depend on the choice of Skyrme forces. It is found that the size of the peninsulas is sensitive to the choice of Skyrme forces and the most extended peninsulas appear with the SkI2 set.

  • An accurately calibrated relativistic parametrization is introduced to compute the ground state properties of finite nuclei, their linear response, and the structure of neutron stars. While similar in spirit to the successful NL3 parameter set, it produces an equation of state that is considerably softer--both for symmetric nuclear matter and for the symmetry energy. This softening appears to be required for an accurate description of several collective modes having different neutron-to-proton ratios. Among the predictions of this model are a symmetric nuclear-matter incompressibility of K=230 MeV and a neutron skin thickness in {sup 208}Pb of R{sub n}-R{sub p}=0.21 fm. Themore » impact of such a softening on various neutron-star properties is also examined.« less
  • An overview of many of the new insights extracted from {gamma},{gamma} and {gamma}-{gamma}-{gamma} coincidence studies of spontaneous fission of {sup 252}Cf and {sup 242}Up with large detector arrays at ORNL and Gammasphere will be presented. These include direct measurements of yields and neutron multiplicities from 0 to l0v for five correlated pairs, identification of a number of cold fission (cluster radioactivity) channels, identification of new structures and behaviors in many neutron-rich nuclei from {sup 94}Sr to {sup 160}Sm. From the yields of the correlated pairs, a new, second mode of SF is observed in the Mo-Ba pairs with much lowermore » total kinetic energy. This mode goes via a hyperdeformed shape (3:1 axis ratio) for {sup 144}Ba, {sup 145}Ba, or {sup 146}Ba. Calculations indicate a third minima in {sup 252}Cf at {Beta}{sub 3} {approximately} 0.7 and {Beta}{sub 2} {approximately} 0.9. The zero neutron cluster radioactivity yields for odd-odd Mo-Ba pairs are about four times larger than for the even-even ones in agreement with recent cluster radioactivity predictions. Identical bands are observed in {sup 98, 100}Sr, {sup 108, 110}Ru, {sup 144,146}Ba, and {sup 152,154}Nd nuclei and new types of identical bands in {sup 156,158,160}Sm nuclei, and the first identical octupole bands. Octupole deformation is seen in N = 86, {sup 142}Ba, {sup 144}Ce and the new high spin octupole states to 19{sup -} exhibit the first backbending and quenching of the static octupole strength as predicted by theory. Selected examples of the new physics being seen will be presented.« less
  • A superdeformed rotational structure is reported in the stable nucleus {sup 68}Zn . It has a transition quadrupole moment (Q{sub t} ) of 2.5{sup +0.7}{sub {minus}0.4} e thinspb ({beta}{sub 2}{approx}0.4 ), as measured by the residual Doppler shift method. Theoretical calculations suggest that two different configurations are possible candidates for this band. One is built without h{sub 11/2} neutrons, as seen in superdeformed bands in the A{approximately}60 region, while the other involves one h{sub 11/2} neutron in analogy with superdeformed bands in the A{approximately}80 region. The second of these candidate configurations is preferred, thus establishing a new, neutron-rich (relative tomore » the line of {beta} stability) region of superdeformation with Z{approximately}30 and N{approximately}38 . {copyright} {ital 1999} {ital The American Physical Society}« less
