How Large is the Spreading Width of a Superdeformed Band?

Wilson, Anna; Sargeant, AJ; Davidson, Paul; Hussein, M S


Recent models of the decay out of superdeformed (SD) bands can broadly be divided into two categories. One approach is based on the similarity between the tunneling process involved in the decay and that involved in the fusion of heavy ions, and it builds on the formalism of nuclear reaction theory. The other arises from an analogy between the superdeformed decay and transport between coupled quantum dots. These models suggest conflicting values for the spreading width of the decaying...[Show more]
