Prolate-Oblate Shape Coexistence at High Spin in Hf-175
Walker, P M, Xu, F R and Cullen, D M (2005) Prolate-Oblate Shape Coexistence at High Spin in Hf-175 Physical Review C, 71 (6).
The recent experimental observation of collective rotational bands up to I > 60h in Hf-175 presents theoretical challenges. It is shown here that total Routhian surface calculations are able to explain the yrast high-spin behavior, with collective oblate states favored at I similar to 35h and strongly deformed prolate states at the highest spins. The collective oblate rotation terminates in noncollective prolate states. Comparisons are made with ultimate cranker calculations, and theoretical quadrupole moments are evaluated.
