An investigation into nuclear shape coexistence through high precision conversion electron and electron-positron pair spectroscopy
Nuclear shape coexistence is a phenomenon where nuclei can exhibit different shapes at similar excitation energy, and, although known for decades, it remains poorly understood. It appears to be ubiquitous across the nuclear chart and seems to be related to the emergence of collectivity in atomic nuclei. Electric monopole transitions are a unique probe of shape coexistence since they are strongly related to shape change and configuration mixing; the E0 transition strength is large when there is...[Show more]
