Title: From Calcium to Cadmium: Testing the Pairing Functional through Charge Radii Measurements of Cd 100 130

Abstract

Differences in mean-square nuclear charge radii of 100–130Cd are extracted from high-resolution collinear laser spectroscopy of the 5s 2S 1/2 → 5p 2P 3/2 transition of the ion and from the 5s5p 3P 2 → 5s6s 3S 1 transition in atomic Cd. The radii show a smooth parabolic behavior on top of a linear trend and a regular odd-even staggering across the almost complete sdgh shell. Furthermore they serve as a first test for a recently established new Fayans functional and show a remarkably good agreement in the trend as well as in the total nuclear charge radius.
