Nuclear structure information derived from proton radioactivity measurements

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Proton decay presents an opportunity to obtain nuclear structure information for a nucleus situated beyond the proton drip line. This relatively rare decay mode is a quantum tunneling phenomenon where the decay rate is determined by a delicate interplay between the Coulomb and centrifugal terms of the nuclear potential. Ground-state proton emitters have been discovered for the odd-Z elements having Z = 51--55, 63, and 67--83. Recent results on proton radioactivity are described. Nuclear structure information such as spins, single particle orbital orderings, spectroscopic factors, and mass excesses have been obtained for a number of spherical proton emitters. New results ... continued below
