Nuclear isomers: stepping stones to the unknown
Walker, PM, Woehr, A and Aprahamian, A (2006) Nuclear isomers: stepping stones to the unknown In: 12th International Symposium on Capture Gamma-Ray Spectroscopy and Related Topics, 2005-09-04 - 2005-09-09, Univ Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN.
The utility of isomers for exploring the nuclear landscape is discussed, including their role in superheavy-element research, and the possibility of observing neutron radioactivity. Emphasis is given to K isomers in deformed nuclei. Transition rates are examined in the NpNn scheme for 2- and 3-quasiparticle K-isomer decays, and in connection with level densities for higher quasiparticle numbers.
