Tilted Rotation and Backbending in an Odd-Proton Nucleus
Pearson, C. J., Walker, P. M., Purry, C. S., Dracoulis, G. D., Bayer, S., Byrne, A. P., Kibédi, T., Kondev, F. G., Shizuma, T., Bark, R. A., Sletten, G. and Frauendorf, S. (1997) Tilted Rotation and Backbending in an Odd-Proton Nucleus Physical Review Letters, 79 (4). pp. 605-608.
Tilted-axis rotation, arising from Fermi-aligned configurations, has been observed for the first time to cause backbending in an odd-proton nucleus. In 181Re, two t-bands are found to be energetically favored relative to the usual rotation-aligned s-bands, presenting an alternative form of cold nuclear rotation. Interactions between the bands are weak, and unambiguous comparisons with tilted-axis-cranking calculations can be made.
