Rotational Bands Near 56Ni

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Rotational bands have been found in Co-57 and Ni-57, using Gammasphere in conjunction with the Microball and 30 neutron detectors. The bands in Co-57, extending the mass 60 region of deformation down to Z = 27, are signature partner sequences. The quadrupole moments and dynamic moments of inertia of the new bands in both nuclei are similar to those of rotational sequences in the neighboring nuclei. The high-spin structure of Co-57 is compared with Skyrme Hartree-Fock calculations.
