Title: Neutron single-particle structure of molybdenum isotopes within the dispersive optical model

Abstract

The evolution of neutron single-particle spectra in molybdenum isotopes was calculated on the basis of the dispersive optical model over the region extending from stable isotopes to the neutron drip line. The question of how the dependence of surface absorption on the neutron–proton asymmetry and the weakening of spin–orbit interaction affect the single-particle spectra in question is studied. The results agree with the concept according to which the shell effect becomes weaker near the neutron drip line.

  • Within the method of matching experimental data obtained in the neutron-stripping and neutron-pickup reactions on {sup 40,42,44,46,48}Ca isotopes, the single-particle energies and probabilities that neutron states are filled are obtained for the even-even calcium isotopes. These data are analyzed within the dispersive optical model, and good agreement between the calculated and experimental values of the energies of states is obtained. The dispersive optical potential is extrapolated to the region of the unstable {sup 50,52,54,56}Ca nuclei. The calculated single-particle energies of bound states in these isotopes are compared with the results of the calculations within the multiparticle shell model, the lattermore » predicting a new magic number N=34 for Z=20 nuclei.« less
  • Neutron single-particle energies in unstable Ti, Cr, and Fe isotopes containing 20 to 26 neutrons were evaluated on the basis of experimental proton energies in the mirror-symmetric nuclei. The neutron single-particle energies in the 20 Less-Than-Or-Slanted-Equal-To N Less-Than-Or-Slanted-Equal-To 50 Ti, Cr, and Fe isotopes were calculated on the basis of the mean-field model with a dispersive optical potential, and the results were compared with available experimental data and with the results of estimations and calculations based on the relativistic mean-field model and on the multiparticle shell model with the GXPF1 interaction.
  • The structure of neutron-rich Cr isotopes is systematically investigated by using the spherical shell model. The calculations reproduce well the known energy levels for the even-even {sup 52-62}Cr and odd-mass {sup 53-59}Cr nuclei, and predict a lowering of excitation energies around neutron number N=40. The calculated B(E2;2{sub 1}{sup +}{yields}0{sub 1}{sup +}) systematics shows a pronounced collectivity around N=40; a similar characteristic behavior has been suggested for Zn and Ge isotopes. Causes for the sudden drop of the 9/2{sub 1}{sup +} energy in {sup 59}Cr and the appearance of very low 0{sub 2}{sup +} states around N=40 are discussed. We alsomore » predict a new band with strong collectivity built on the 0{sub 2}{sup +} state in the N=40 isotope {sup 64}Cr.« less
  • The evolution of single-particle neutron spectra in the N = 40 isotones {sup 60}Ca, {sup 62}Ti, {sup 64}Cr, {sup 66}Fe, {sup 68}Ni, and {sup 70}Zn is calculated on the basis of the mean-field model featuring a dispersive optical potential. The results of these calculations agree with the idea that the degree of collectivity becomes higher in the {sup 64}Сr nucleus and that the coupling of single-particle motion to this collectivity becomes stronger, as well as with available experimental data, which are indicative of the closure of the N = 40 subshell in {sup 68}Ni and of the trend toward thismore » closure in {sup 60}Ca.« less
  • We have investigated the odd-[ital A] Tc isotopes in the mass 100 region using the neutron-proton interacting boson-fermion model. The calculation is based on the validity of the [ital Z]=38 subshell closure. The results for the energy spectra and electromagnetic transitions are compared with experimental data and with results from other calculations which considered [ital Z]=50 as a valid closed shell for Tc isotopes.
