experimentally quantum numbers in proton emitters. Among considered clusters, 12C, 20Ne and 24Mg are found to have lowest half-lives among other N = Z clusters and for a few clusters the half-lives are found to be comparable with that of proton emission. The obtained four parameter formula is applied to estimate the half-lives of the proton emitters with ℓ = 3. Positron emission happens when an up quark changes into a down quark. To fully account for the observed half-life in $^{58}$Cu, one has to consider a shape mixing in the final state. Fine structure in proton emission from the [Formula presented] activity of [Formula presented] was discovered by using a novel technique of digital processing of overlapping recoil implantation and decay signals.

Zganjar, Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review. The one-proton radioactivity in the region of intermediate mass and heavy nuclei is studied by performing WKB-calculation with a nuclear potential barrier generated by the superposition of the Coulomb potential, centrifugal, spin-orbit and a Woods-Saxon form for the nuclear interaction. Rotational bands of the deformed proton emitter 141Ho are studied by using the projected shell model. proton emission. The charge distribution of emitted clusters in the cluster decay and that of daughter nuclei in the proton emission are determined to correspondingly reproduce the experimental half-lives within the folding model. A multiparticle spin-trap isomer has been discovered in the proton-unbound nucleus Ta85 73158. The role of hexadecapole deformation for this nucleus is emphasized. Proton transitions to the ground state of [Formula presented] and to its first excited [Formula presented] state at 0.33(1) MeV with a branching ratio [Formula presented] were observed. Extensive theoretical attempts were made to study this exotic process [11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18], ... For the same data from [17], Basu et al. Proton emission (also known as proton radioactivity) is a rare type of radioactive decay in which a proton is ejected from a nucleus. Comment: 8 pages, 1 fugre. Bremsstrahlung / ˈ b r ɛ m ʃ t r ɑː l ə ŋ / (German pronunciation: [ˈbʁɛms.ʃtʁaːlʊŋ] ()), from bremsen "to brake" and Strahlung "radiation"; i.e., "braking radiation" or "deceleration radiation", is electromagnetic radiation produced by the deceleration of a charged particle when deflected by another charged particle, typically an electron by an atomic nucleus.

Halflives of 43 proton emitters, in their ground and isomeric states, are calculated for the data taken from refs. C 78, 044310 (2008)]. 1 Decay scheme for 54Ni including the anticipated (1.22 MeV) and expected (2.55 MeV) proton emission from the 10+ isomer in 54Ni into the 9/2− and 7/2− daughter states in 53Co, respectively.Data are taken from Ref. An empirical formula is proposed for the two-proton decay half-lives. Two previously identified rotational bands have been observed and extended to tentative spins of 45/2 and , with excitation energies over 8 MeV above the lowest state. Strongly suppressed γ transition from the low-lying Iπ=3/2+ state makes this state isomeric, in favor of the suggestion that a proton emission could become the favorite decay mode for this state. There is some evidence for a transition with energy close to 91 keV being in coincidence with Band 2, as shown in Fig. Calculations on superheavy elements reveal that cluster radioactivity has half-lives comparable with proton emissions. A = (Relative) atomic mass = Mass number = Sum of protons and neutrons; N = Number of neutrons; Z = Atomic number = Number of protons = Number of electrons Our calculations show that the change of deformation in the decay process has a significant influence on the, Half-lives of proton radioactivity are investigated with a deformed density-dependent model. Proton emission, $\alpha$ decay, and cluster radioactivity play an important role in nuclear physics. Ground- and excited-state nuclear properties for nuclei with Z>50 that exhibit proton radioactivity have been compiled and evaluated. The quantitative agreement with experimental data obtained in our study requires that the parameters of the proton-nucleus potential be chosen carefully. Half-lives of proton emission for proton emitters with Z = 51 to 83 are calculated, in the frame-work of unified fission model with the penetrability calculated using the WKB approximation. Evaporation residues were separated in-flight using the Argonne fragment mass analyzer and implanted into a new design double-sided silicon strip detector. One of these is an analytical formula for the half-lives of proton emission. P. Möller, R. J. Nix, W. D. Myers, and W. Swiatecki, At. A.} The calculated decay widths are found to be qualitatively insensitive to the parameters of the proton-nucleus potential, i.e., changing the potential parameters over a fairly large range typically changes the decay width by no more than a factor of {approximately}3. The isomer mainly decays by γ-ray emission with a half-life of 6.1(1) μs.

Experimentally for a few isotopes, proton and alpha branches are reported. yzed in order to understand hydrogen hyperfine splitting. In higher-Z regions of the drip-line, the potential energy barrier resulting from the mutual electrostatic interaction between the unbound proton and the core can cause nuclei to survive long enough to be detected. Moreover, we use it to simultaneously describe the data of spherical and deformed emitters. The new level scheme fits well the systematics of light iodine nuclei and provides evidence for a terminating band at the highest spins.

The reduced experimental data lie on two straight lines as a result of a sudden change in the nuclear shape, marking two regions of deformation, divided by the charge number Data Nucl. Proton decay is a rare type of radioactive decay of nuclei containing excess protons, in which a proton is simply ejected from the nucleus.This article describes mainly spontaneous proton emission (proton decay) and does not describe decay of a free proton. The depth of the Woods-Saxon potential is determined in order to reproduce the experimental Q-value of each proton emission process. Z = 68. The aim of this work is not only to reproduce the experimental data better, but also to achieve a unified description of proton emission, α decay, and cluster radioactivity. The emission to excited states of the daughter nucleus and angular distribution of the emitted proton is discussed. This study is an extension of the empirical formula reported recently by us for calculating the logarithmic half-lives of one-proton emitters. Manuscripts published before September 1, 2001 have been included in this work. spherical emitters but also shows excellent agreement with the experimental data of deformed emitters. Proton transitions to the ground state of [Formula presented] and to its first excited [Formula presented] state at 0.33(1) MeV with a branching ratio [Formula presented] were observed. Various theoretical approaches to proton emission from spherical nuclei are investigated, and it is found that all the methods employed give very similar results. A very simple formula is presented that relates the logarithm of the half-life, corrected by the centrifugal barrier, with the Coulomb parameter in proton decay processes. Our study may further suggest that, for proton emitters like $^{166}$Ir, when the electric field is strong, the dominant decay mode could be changed from $\alpha$ decay to proton emission. L.

Low-Z nuclei lying beyond this limit only exist as short-lived resonances and cannot be detected directly. A backed-target experiment, at a low beam energy of 210 MeV, was performed using the JUROSPHERE spectrometer, while a thin-target experiment at 250 MeV was performed using the GAMMASPHERE spectrometer in conjunction with the MICROBALL charged-particle detector array. A similar four-parameter formula as a function of angular momentum is proposed for the two-proton emitters. Answer: With the emission of a β-particle from nucleus B, number of protons will increase by one, i.e., number of protons = 82 + 1 = 83 and number of neutrons will be 126 – 1 = 125, i.e., the nucleus C will have 83 protons and 125 neutrons. An empirical formula is proposed for the two-proton decay half-lives. 2. Recently, it is pointed out by Ref. We show that high-frequency alternative electric fields could deform Coulomb barriers that trap the charged particle, and raise the possibility of speeding up charged particle emissions. particular, we show that, by using surface Gaussian-like components in Decay widths in emission processes are described within the stationary We analyse time-dependent and stationary formalisms within adiabatic and non-adiabatic methods.

This new formula contains the dependence on the centrifugal barrier and the structure of the daughter nucleus. 2(g), which could represent the transition from the 5/2 + bandhead of Band 2 to the 5/2 + state at 74 keV. The status of numerical applications for both spherical and deformed approaches is reviewed. linear dependence between the logaritm of the reduced width and Here, the two linear fits in terms of the fragmentation potential, corresponding to the two regions of charge numbers, have roughly the same slopes, but different values in origin. In a proton, whose charge is +1, there are two up quarks and one down quark (2 / 3 + 2 / 3 − 1 / 3 = 1). The status of numerical applications for both spherical and deformed approaches is reviewed. Most of the experimental half-lives of proton radioactivities have been obtained. The transition is assigned to a highly deformed (β2∼0.3) Jπ=7∕2− configuration by comparing the proton decay rate with calculations for deformed nuclei. These dependencies provide a powerfull tool to assign quantum numbers to the experimentally observed decay processes. In nuclear physics, beta decay (β-decay) is a type of radioactive decay in which a beta particle (fast energetic electron or positron) is emitted from an atomic nucleus, transforming the original nuclide to an isobar of that nuclide. Proton transitions to the ground state of [Formula presented] and to its first excited [Formula presented] state at 0.33(1) MeV with a branching ratio [Formula presented] were observed. The proton emitters with ℓ =3 (3-emitters) are not considered for the fitting. We use a pocket-like potential between emitted Example #5: Since the proton emission is almost simultaneous with the β-decay, the energy deposited in the DSSD is the sum of the full proton energy and the small (~ few hundred keV) energy loss signal of the outgoing β particle, which largely escapes the … scattering theory.

Further, the calculations are extended to find half-lives of superheavy element with odd proton number in the range Z = 105 to 119, for both proton, alpha and for a few cluster decays. In addition, the angular momentum coupling of proton and neutron orbitals can result in an important $K$-hindrance of the decay. Special emphasis is given to the case of transitions between states with different deformations. The suitability of the above formula for the two-proton emission is studied. abstract = "Fine structure in proton emission from the [Formula presented] activity of [Formula presented] was discovered by using a novel technique of digital processing of overlapping recoil implantation and decay signals.

A. Cole, J. Proton emission can occur from high-lying excited states in a nucleus following a beta decay, in which case the process is known as beta-delayed proton emission, or can occur from the ground state (or a low-lying isomer) of very proton-rich nuclei, in which case the process is very similar to alpha decay. within coupled channels, R-matrix and distorded wave approaches. The calculated results of semi-spherical nuclei are found to be in good agreement with the experimental data, and the results of well-deformed nuclei are also satisfactory. Half-lives of proton emission for $ Z\geq 51$ nuclei are calculated within a simple analytical model based on the WKB approximation for the barrier penetration probability which includes the centrifugal and overlapping effects besides the electrostatic repulsion. Proton half-lives of observed heavy proton emitters are, in general, well reproduced by spherical calculations with the spectroscopic factors calculated in the independent quasiparticle approximation.

The data suggest that the band based upon the configuration is not observed. This study is an extension of the empirical formula reported recently by us for calculating the logarithmic half-lives of one-proton emitters. Stopping-power and range tables can be calculated for electrons in any user-specified material and for protons and helium ions in 74 materials. For a proton to escape a nucleus, the proton separation energy must be negative—the prot… Analysis of the γ-ray data shows that the isomer lies 2668 keV above the known 9+ state and has a spin 10ℏ higher and negative parity. Proton transitions to the ground state of [Formula presented] and to its first excited [Formula presented] state at 0.33(1) MeV with a branching ratio [Formula presented] were observed. The present result is found to be incompatible with a previously reported observation of ground-state proton radioactivity from $^{121}\mathrm{Pr}$, which would have represented the discovery of this phenomenon.

THE work of many experimenters 1 has proved that the excitation curve of the γ-ray emission from fluorine under proton bombardment exhibits a series of sharp resonances. The emission to excited states of the daughter nucleus and angular distribution of the emitted proton is discussed. The corresponding experimental data lie on two straight lines corresponding to different regions of charge numbers, independently of the angular momentum of the outgoing proton. We give a description of odd–even as well as odd–odd proton emitters using axially symmetric or triaxial potentials. Ground State Proton Radioactivity from Pr 121 : When Was This Exotic Nuclear Decay Mode First Discovered? For all the ground and isomeric state of the proton, the deformation degree of freedom is included.

In the appendices we give all technical details necessary to compute the observables connected with proton emission. Theoretical approaches to investigate the properties of such nuclei by using proton emission are reviewed. In this talk a review of the developments in radioactive decay processes There were many publications for the half-lives of proton emission. A transition with a proton energy of ${E}_{p}=882(10)\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{keV}$ [${Q}_{p}=900(10)\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{keV}$] and half-life ${t}_{1/2}={10}_{$-${}3}^{+6}\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{ms}$ has been observed and is assigned to the decay of a highly prolate deformed $3/{2}^{+}$ or $3/{2}^{$-${}}$ Nilsson state. It also suggests that deformed proton emitters will provide invaluable spectroscopic information on the angular momentum decomposition of single-proton orbitals in deformed nuclei. A study of aligned angular momenta, in comparison to the predictions of Woods-Saxon cranking calculations, is consistent with the most intense band being based on the configuration, which would contradict the earlier assignment, and with the second band being based on the configuration.
