High-spin Structure Studies in 62Zn

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A detailed experimental study of the Zn-62 nucleus was conducted by combining the data sets from four fusion-evaporation reaction experiments. Apart from the previous published data, the present results include ten new rotational band structures and two new superdeformed bands. The GAMMASPHERE Ge-detector array in conjunction with the 4 pi charged-particle detector array Microball allowed for detection of gamma-rays in coincidence with evaporated light particles. The deduced level scheme includes some 260 excited states, which are connected with 450 gamma-ray transitions. The multipolarities have been assigned via directional correlations of gamma-rays emitted from oriented states. The experimental characteristics of the rotational bands are analyzed and compared with the results from the cranked Nilsson-Strutinsky calculations.
