Identification of Isomeric States "South" of Pb-208 via Projectile Fragmentation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Relativistic fragmentation of Pb-208 has been used to produce excited states in neutron-rich nuclei with N approximate to 126. Spectroscopic information for a range of nuclei has been obtained through observing delayed gamma-ray emissions from isomeric states. Preliminary results for Pt-203,Pt-204 nuclei are presented. For the first time, excited states have been observed in Pt-203 and Pt-204. The yrast structure of Pt-204 up to spin-parity, I pi = (10(+)) has been tentatively inferred from the internal decay of two isomeric states.
