Title: Theoretical study of band structure of odd-mass {sup 115,117}I isotopes

Abstract

By using the microscopic approach of Projected Shell Model (PSM), negative-parity band structures of odd mass neutron-rich {sup 115,117}I nuclei have been studied with the deformed single-particle states generated by the standard Nilsson potential. For these isotopes, the band structures have been analyzed in terms of quasi-particles configurations. The phenomenon of back bending in moment of inertia is also studied in the present work.

  • The level structure of $sup 137$La populated by the $beta$ decay of $sup 137$Ce/subm/$sup +$/subg/ was studied by $gamma$-ray and conversion-electron spectroscopy using mass-separated sources, large-volume and Compton-suppressed Ge(Li) detectors, and a Si(Li) detector. Nine previously unreported transitions were observed and two more levels were established in $sup 137$La. The $sup 137$La level structure is discussed in terms of the weak-coupling model.
  • The $gamma$-ray spectrum of 23.9-h $sup 187$W has been measured using Ge(Li) detectors. Singles data obtained with a Compton-suppression $gamma$-ray spectrometer and a planar Ge(Li) detector have been particularly useful in enabling us to detect very weak transitions not seen by previous experimenters. Some of these transitions have been used to establish new levels in $sup 187$Re at 816.56, 826.6, 844.7, 960.17, 1190.38, and 1220.8 keV, and evidence is presented for assignment of the first four of these levels as the 5/2 1/2$sup +$411, 7/2 1/2$sup +$411, 7/2 7/2$sup +$404, and 5/2 3/2$sup +$411 Nilsson states, respectively.

  • 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.
  • We have studied the levels of {sup 143}Pr populated in the beta decay of {sup 143}Ce using singles and Compton suppression gamma-ray spectroscopy techniques. We determined a value of 33.10{plus minus}0.05 h for the half-life of {sup 143}Ce. In contrast to previous studies, we find no evidence for low-energy negative-parity levels in the decay of {sup 143}Ce to {sup 143}Pr. In addition we have performed calculations in the framework of the interacting boson-fermion model, which compare well with the level structure of {sup 143}Pr. These calculations have been extended to the heavier Pr isotopes.
  • The structure of [sup 147]Pr has been investigated by performing measurements of [gamma]-ray and conversion-electron singles and [gamma][gamma] coincidence spectra of mass separated sources of 56-s [sup 147]Ce. The proposed level scheme extends the known structure of [sup 147]Pr to an energy of 2.2 MeV and includes several levels below 1.2 MeV that have not been identified in previous decay studies of [sup 147]Ce. Measurement of the conversion coefficients for several transitions has led to the assignment of negative parity to the levels at 362, 452, 467, and 608 keV in [sup 147]Pr, which show properties similar to low-energy negative-paritymore » states identified in [sup 145]Pr[sub 86], [sup 145]La[sub 88], and [sup 149]Pm[sub 88]. The presence of low-energy negative-parity states suggests that configurations having significantly different deformation, related to the highly deformed region above [ital N]=90 and/or to the reflection asymmetric region identified around [sup 145]Ba, may manifest themselves at low energy in these nuclides.« less
