Prompt Proton Decay Scheme of 59Cu
Research output: Contribution to journal › Letter
Five prompt proton decay lines have been identified between deformed states in Cu-59 and three spherical states in Ni-58 by means of high-resolution in-beam particle-gammagamma coincidence spectroscopy. The GAMMASPHERE array coupled to dedicated ancillary detectors including four DeltaE-E silicon strip detectors was used to study high-spin states in Cu-59. The multiple discrete proton lines are found to probe the wave functions of states in the decay-out regime of well- and superdeformed states.
