Title: α decay of high- K isomers in Ds 270 and Hs 266 in a superfluid tunneling model

Abstract

Here, we use the superfluid tunneling model (STM) to calculate the half-lives of ground-state α decays of even-even superheavy nuclei (SHN) with Z ≥ 100 . The experimental data are reproduced to accuracies comparable to other contemporary models of α decay of SHN. We apply the STM to the case of the α decaying high-K isomers identified in the decay chains of 270Ds . By accounting for the α -decay Q values, Q α, the angular momentum difference between initial and final states, L, and a reduction in the pairing gap, Δ, we are able to reproduce the observed α decay of the isomers, including the unusual competition between L ≈ 10 and L ≈ 0 α branches seen for the K isomer in 270Ds ( Z = 110 ).
