Test of {Delta}I = 2 staggering in the superdeformed bands of {sup 194}Hg

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Superdeformed (SD) states in {sup 194}Hg were populated in {sup 150}Nd({sup 48}Ca,4n) using a 201 MeV {sup 48}Ca beam from the 88- inch cyclotron. A high statistics experiment was done to test for the previously reported evidence for a {Delta}I = 2 staggering in the three SD bands in {sup 194}Hg. The transition energies were determined with a precision of at least 60 eV for most transitions. From this improvement, we cannot confirm evidence for an extended regular {Delta}I = 2 staggering in any of the three SD bands of {sup 194}Hg. However, we observe deviations from a smooth reference ... continued below

Description

Superdeformed (SD) states in {sup 194}Hg were populated in {sup 150}Nd({sup 48}Ca,4n) using a 201 MeV {sup 48}Ca beam from the 88- inch cyclotron. A high statistics experiment was done to test for the previously reported evidence for a {Delta}I = 2 staggering in the three SD bands in {sup 194}Hg. The transition energies were determined with a precision of at least 60 eV for most transitions. From this improvement, we cannot confirm evidence for an extended regular {Delta}I = 2 staggering in any of the three SD bands of {sup 194}Hg. However, we observe deviations from a smooth reference in the SD bands 2 and 3 which differ from previous results. Oscillation patterns of the {gamma}-ray energies that can be induced by a simple band crossing or level shift are discussed. Even though such level shifts would explain the observed effects, other experimental signatures, such as a crossing band, are needed to fully understand the results of the present work; no such band was found.
