Description

A search for production of the superheavy elements with atomic numbers 119 and 120 was performed in the 50Ti + 249Bk and 50Ti + 249Cf fusion-evaporation reactions, respectively, at the gas-filled recoil separator TASCA at GSI Darmstadt, Germany. Over four months of irradiation, the 249Bk target partially decayed into 249Cf, which allowed for a simultaneous search for both elements. Neither was detected at cross-section sensitivity levels of 65 and 200 fb for the 50Ti + 249Bk and 50Ti + 249Cf...[Show more]
