Title: Well Developed Deformation in Si 42

For this research, excited states in 38,40,42Si nuclei have been studied via in-beam γ-ray spectroscopy with multinucleon removal reactions. Intense radioactive beams of 40S and 44S provided at the new facility of the RIKEN Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory enabled γ-γ coincidence measurements. A prominent γ line observed with an energy of 742(8) keV in 42Si confirms the 2 + state reported in an earlier study. Among the γ lines observed in coincidence with the 2 + → 0 + transition, the most probable candidate for the transition from the yrast 4 + state was identified, leading to a 4 1 + energy of 2173(14) keV. The energy ratio of 2.93(5) between the 2 1 + and 4 1 + states indicates well-developed deformation in 42Si at N = 28 and Z = 1 . Also for 38,40Si energy ratios with values of 2.09(5) and 2.56(5) were obtained. Finally, together with the ratio for 42Si, the results show a rapid deformation development of Si isotopes from N = 24 to N = 28.
