Description

The shell structure underlying shape changes in neutron-rich nuclei near N=28 has been investigated by a novel application of the transient-field technique to measure the first-excited-state g factors in S38 and S40 produced as fast radioactive beams. There is a fine balance between proton and neutron contributions to the magnetic moments in both nuclei. The g factor of deformed S40 does not resemble that of a conventional collective nucleus because spin contributions are more important than...[Show more]

There is a fine balance between proton and neutron contributions to the magnetic moments in both nuclei. The g factor of deformed S40 does not resemble that of a conventional collective nucleus because spin contributions are more important than usual.
