Title: Systematic study of iodine nuclei in A∼125 mass region

Abstract

Excited states of {sup 127}I were populated via {sup 124}Sn({sup 7}Li,{sup 4}nγ){sup 127}I fusion-evaporation reaction at beam energy of 33 MeV. Multipolarities of several transitions were determined and spins of corresponding states have been confirmed. The band-head spin and parity of an already reported band at 2901.2 keV has been confirmed. Based on the observed characteristic features and by comparing with the systematics of odd mass iodine nuclei, a πg{sub 7/2}⊗νh{sub 11/2}{sup 2} configuration has been proposed for this band. The experimental B(M1)/B(E2) values for πg{sub 7/2} band were compared with the theoretical results of semi classical model of Frauendorf and Donau and found in well agreement.

  • Recent development of large arrays of gamma-made it possible for detailed studies of nuclear structure topics that were difficult or impossible in the past. One such subject is the systematic study of odd-odd nuclei at high angular momentum. Recent experimental data on a number of odd-odd holmium, thulium and lutetium nuclei show interesting, yet previously unobserved phenomena. Systematics of signature-dependent excitation energies and transition probabilities for these odd-odd nuclei indicate strong influence of the odd neutron and proton on the nuclear shape. A systematic analysis of band crossing frequencies reveals an anomaly that is difficult to understand in terms ofmore » current theoretical models. These phenomena show that odd-odd nuclei carry rich nuclear structure information, and a coherent theoretical model is needed in order to interpret these new data.« less
  • Yrast superdeformed bands for even-even nuclei of the mass-190 region are described by the projected shell model. Excellent agreement with available data for all isotopes is obtained. Our calculation of electromagnetic properties and pairing correlations provides a microscopic understanding of the observed gradual increase of dynamical moments of inertia with angular momentum in this mass region and suggests that for superdeformation it is not very meaningful to distinguish between Coriolis antipairing and gradual high-j orbital alignment. {copyright} {ital 1997} {ital The American Physical Society}
  • Multiple-particle ..gamma..-ray coincidence techniques have been used to establish the high spin structure of /sup 76/Rb. Two ..delta..I = 1 bands were found built on the I/sup ..pi../ = 1/sup -/ ground state and on the I/sup ..pi../ = (4/sup +/) isomeric state at 316.8 keV energy. Systematic of positive parity bands seen in the Br-Kr-Rb isotones with N = 39 and 41 is discussed.
  • Generation of angular momentum in nuclei is a key question in nuclear structure studies. In single particle model, it is due to alignment of spin of individual nucleon available in the valence space, whereas coherent motion of nucleons are assumed in the collective model. The nuclei near the closed shell at Z = 50 with mass number A ≈ 120-125 represent ideal cases to explore the interplay between these competing mechanisms and the transition from non-collective to collective behavior or vice versa. Recent spectroscopic studies of nuclei in this region reveal several non-collective maximally aligned states representing the first kindmore » of excitation mechanism, where 8-12 particles above the {sup 114}Sn align their spins to generate these states. Deformed rotational bands feeding the non-collective states in the spin range I=20-25 and excitation energies around 10 MeV have also been observed. Structure of the collective and non-collective states are discussed in the framework of Cranked-Nilsson-Strutinsky model.« less
