Search for Linking Transitions in 143Eu

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An experiment was performed with the Gammasphere Ge-detector array, and the Microball charged particle detector, to search for transitions involved in the decay from the yrast superdeformed band in Eu-143. Sum spectra in coincidence with single, double, and triple gates on SD transitions were produced to search for previously reported two-step links between the superdeformed and the near-yrast ND levels. The sum spectra contained no evidence of peaks corresponding to sums of two-step linking transitions. Several discrete gamma rays were observed in coincidence with the yrast SD band. One previously reported single-step transition at 3361 keV was confirmed to decay out of the SD band.
