Competing Decay-out Mechanisms of the Yrast Superdeformed Band in 59Cu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

This contribution reports on the decay-out of the yrast superdeformed band in <sup>59</sup>Cu. It decays by multiple γ-ray transitions into low-spin spherical states in the first minimum of the nuclear potential in <sup>59</sup>Cu, and, in competition, by emitting two prompt protons into a spherical state in <sup>58</sup>Ni. For the first time in A ~ 60, the role of doorway states in the course of the decay-out is discussed
