Nuclear structure models: Applications and development. [Department of Physics, Tennessee Technological University, Cookeville, Tennessee]
Description: This report summarizes the progress made during the period July 1, 1992 to April 30, 1993. The study of rotational structure at moderate spins in odd-odd nuclei (Section 1) has continued into the A [approximately] 80 region. Recent experimental data for the positive parity band in [sup 82]Y, including absolute BM1 and BE2 values, are rather well described with a prolatish'' triaxial shape and a [pi]g[sub 9/2] [direct product] [nu]g[sub 9/2] configuration. Little effect from a protonneutron interaction has been found so far. Current studies of odd mass nuclei (Section 2) are mainly focussing on low spin, low energy states in the A [approximately] 130 region as a probe to the evolving collectivity. These projects involve direct collaboration with experimental colleagues. Finally, a view of the microscopic foundation of particle-core coupling models approached from the equation of motion method is presented (Section 3).
