Extensive Gamma-ray Spectroscopy of Band Structures in 62Zn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


An experimental study of the Zn-62 nucleus has been performed by combining the data sets from four fusion-evaporation reaction experiments. Apart from the previously published data, the present results include ten new rotational band structures and two more superdeformed bands. The Gammasphere Ge-detector array in conjunction with the 4 pi charged-particle detector array Microball allowed for the detection of gamma rays in coincidence with evaporated light particles. The deduced level scheme includes some 260 excited states, which are connected with more than 450 gamma-ray transitions. Spins and parities of the excited states have been determined via directional correlations of. rays emitted from oriented states. The experimental characteristics of the rotational bands are analyzed and compared with results from cranked Nilsson-Strutinsky calculations. The present analysis, combined with available experimental results in the A similar to 60 mass region, can be used to improve the current set of Nilsson parameters in the N = 3 and N = 4 oscillator shells.
