High-K states as a Probe of Nuclear Structure
High-K states played a key part in the discovery and understanding of deformed nuclei. An example is given of the recent use of high-K states as a signature of axially-symmetric prolate deformation in a nucleus which is predicted to show co-existence between spherical, oblate and prolate shapes. When associated bands can be identified, high-K states can also be used as a probe of pairing, and its modifiication of rotational motion. New results in 178W imply that the underlying rigid...[Show more]
