title = "Decay Study of 246Fm at SHIP",
abstract = "The decay chain of Fm-246 has been investigated employing the SHIP separator at GSI Darmstadt. The Fm-246 nuclei were produced via the Ar-40(Pb-208, 2n)Fm-246 fusion-evaporation reaction. Improved values of the half-life, T-1/2 = 1.54(4) s, and of the spontaneous fission branching ratio, b(SF) = 0.068(6), of Fm-246 were obtained. The beta(+)/electron capture branching ratio, b(EC) = 0.39(3), of Cf-242 was deduced. Possible structures of high-K states in Fm-246 are discussed within the framework of a model calculation based on the Woods-Saxon potential.",
