Title: Single-neutron states in {sup 101}Sn.

Abstract

The first data on the relative single-particle energies outside the doubly magic {sup 100}Sn nucleus were obtained. A prompt 171.7(6) keV {gamma}-ray transition was correlated with protons emitted following the {beta} decay of {sup 101}Sn and is interpreted as the transition between the single-neutron g{sub 7/2} and d{sub 5/2} orbitals in {sup 101}Sn. This observation provides a stringent test of current nuclear structure models. The measured {nu}{sub g7/2}-{nu}{sub d5/2} energy splitting is compared with values calculated using mean-field nuclear potentials and is used to calculate low-energy excited states in light Sn isotopes in the framework of the shell model. The correlation technique used in this work offers possibilities for future, more extensive spectroscopy near {sup 100}Sn.
