How deformed are the TSD bands in odd Lu isotopes?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The experimental fingerprints for large deformation in the triaxial strongly deformed (TSD) bands of 163,165,167Lu are discussed. It is argued that these fingerprints are not very convincing. On the contrary, especially the fact that there exist strong interactions between the TSD bands and normal-deformed (ND) bands indicates that the deformation of the TSD bands cannot be very different from that of the ND bands. The need for detailed new experimental data is underlined.
