Title: Hauser-Feshbach calculations in deformed nuclei

Abstract

Hauser Feshbach calculations for deformed nuclei are typically done with level densities appropriate for deformed nuclei but with Hauser Feshbach codes which enforce spherical symmetry by not including K as a parameter in the decay sums. A code has been written which does allow the full K dependence to be included. Calculations with the code have been compared with those from a conventional Hauser Feshbach code. The evaporation portion (continuum) is only slightly affected by this change but the cross sections to individual (resolved) levels are changed substantially. It is found that cross sections to neighboring levels with the same J but differing K are not the same. The predicted consequences of K mixing will also be discussed.
