The lightest isotope of Bh known was produced in the new 209Bi(2Cr,n)260Bh
reaction at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's 88-Inch Cyclotron. Positive
identification was made by observation of eight correlated alpha particle decay chains in
the focal plane detector of the Berkeley Gas-Filled Separator. 260Bh decays with a
35+g9 ms half-life by alpha particle emission mainly by a group at 10.16 MeV. The
measured cross section of 59+20 pb is approximately a factor of four larger than compared
to recent model predictions. The influence of the N = 152 and Z = 108 shells on alpha
decay properties are discussed.
