Magnetic Moments in 90Mo - a Discriminating Test of the (g9/2,p1/2) Shell Model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


New magnetic moments presented here allow stringent tests of the truncated shell model calculations performed in the region below the N = 50 neutron shell. The experimental g-factors for selected medium-spin yrast states in Mo-90 were determined via the IMPAD technique using the (Ni(Cl,3p))-Ni-58-Cl-35 reaction. The results of g(5-, 2549 keV) = +1.10 +/- 0.28, g(11-, 4842 keV) = +0.42 +/- 0.13 and g(12+, 4556 keV) = +0.50 +/- 0.06 are used to show the that (g9/2,p1/2) configuration space with respect to a Sr-88 core is a rather successful truncation for the effective interactions considered but some shortcomings are exposed.
