A lifetime experiment, using the Doppler-shift attenuation method, has been performed at Gammasphere to measure the transition quadrupole moments Q t of strongly deformed bands in Hf171 and Hf172. The measured value of Qt ~ 9.5 e b for the band labeled ED in Hf171 strongly supports the recent suggestion that this sequence and several structures with similar properties in neighboring Hf isotopes are associated with a near-prolate shape with a deformation enhanced relative to that of normal...[Show more]
