Two isomers decaying by electromagnetic transitions with half-lives of 4.7(1.1) and 247(73)μs have been discovered in the heavy Rf254 nucleus. The observation of the shorter-lived isomer was made possible by a novel application of a digital data acquisition system. The isomers were interpreted as the Kπ=8-, ν2(7/2+,9/2-) two-quasineutron and the Kπ=16+, 8-ν2(7/2+,9/2-)⊗ - 8-π2(7/2-,9/2+) four-quasiparticle configurations, respectively. Surprisingly, the lifetime of...[Show more]
