Unusual Isospin-Breaking and Isospin-mixing Effects in the A=35 Mirror Nuclei
Research output: Contribution to journal › Letter
Excited states have been studied in Ar-35 following the O-16(Mg-24,1alpha1n)Ar-35 fusion-evaporation reaction at 60 MeV using the Ge-detector array GASP. A comparison with the mirror nucleus Cl-35 shows two remarkable features: (i) A surprisingly large energy difference for the 13/2(-) states, in which the hitherto overlooked electromagnetic spin-orbit term is shown to play a major role, and (ii) a very different decay pattern for the 7/2(-) states, which provides direct evidence of isospin mixing.
