Atomic nuclei are driven towards non-spherical equilibrium shapes when moving away from shell closures. The energy levels in well-deformed nuclei are characterized by collective motion, including rotations and vibrations, and by intrinsic excitations. In the rare-earth nuclei around double midshell (Z=66, N=104), not only quadrupole vibrational modes such as $\gamma$ and $\beta$ vibrations, but al ... More

Americium-242m is a unique nuclide with attributes that make it suitable for numerous energy-related applications. With a 141-year half life, the metastable isomer is long-lived with respect to the americium-242 ground state (16 hours). Another appealing quality is that americium-242m has the highest measured thermal-fission cross section of any known nucleus. The americium-242m neutron-induced ... More

Astrophysical models, like those used for stellar objects, require accurate thermonuclear reaction rates in order to predict the nuclear power production and dynamic evolution of these systems. Direct measurement of nuclear reaction rates in thermonuclear plasmas is challenging because these conditions are difficult to produce and diagnose. There are physics issues such as plasma electron-screenin ... More

The Isochronous Mass Spectrometry (IMS) is a powerful technique developed in heavy-ion storage rings for measuring masses of very short-lived exotic nuclei. The IMS is based on the isochronous setting of the ring. One of the main parameters of this setting is the transition energy gt. It has been a challenge to determine the gt and especially to monitor the variation of gt during experiments. ... More

An important approach to nuclear structure is the use of structural symmetries and approximate symmetries. An example of the former is SU(3), pioneered by Elliott in the 1950's. This breaks down in heavy nuclei where the well-known approximate symmetry, pseudo-SU(3), has been actively studied for several decades. As an outgrowth of studies of proton-neutron interactions, we have proposed a new ap ... More

We present a microscopic calculation of alpha-cluster formation in heavy nuclei by using the quartetting wave function approach[1]. The interaction of the quartet with the core nucleus is taken in local density approximation. The alpha-cluster formation is found to be particularly sensitive to the interplay of the mean field felt by the alpha-cluster and the Pauli blocking as a consequence of anti ... More

Alpha cluster states in excited $^{16}$O are not only of interest for the study of nuclear structure (e.g., the possible existence of 4$\alpha$ linear chain configuration), but also crucial in understanding the helium burning of stellar nucleosynthesis (e.g., the $^{12}$C+$\alpha$ reaction rate).

The study of the properties of the nuclear scissors mode provides an essential insight into the nature of the restoring forces between the proton and neutron subsystems. Hence, the isovector low-lying $J_K^{\pi}=1_1^+$ scissors mode of deformed nuclei has been studied extensively in the past with main focus on strong $M1$ transitions to the ground-state band.

The stable isotopes of xenon, which have attracted interest for a number of reasons, span a transitional region that evolves from $\gamma$-soft structures for the lighter mass isotopes [1] to nearly spherical $^{136}$Xe with a closed neutron shell. The nature of this transition, which is gradual, is not well understood [2]. Moreover, these nuclei are difficult to study, as the required targets f ... More

Without going through specific nuclei or shell gaps, universal roles of central, tensor, and spin–orbit forces can be proved, reflecting the intrinsic features of shell model effective interactions. For monopole matrix elements, even and odd channels of central force often have a canceling effect.
