Abstract

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.
