Nuclear structure and β-decay schemes for Te nuclides beyond N=82

2017-04-25T10:00:00-04:00

Author(s): B. Moon et al.
We study for the first time the internal structure of ^{140}Te through the β-delayed γ-ray spectroscopy of ^{140}Sb. The very neutron-rich ^{140}Sb nuclei with Z=51 and N=89 were produced by the in-flight fission of ^{238}U beams at the Radioactive Isotope Beam Factory, RIKEN. The half-life and spin…

Neutron unbound states in ^{23}N were populated via proton knockout from an 83.4 MeV/nucleon ^{24}O beam on a liquid deuterium target. The two-body decay energy displays two peaks at E_{1}∼100keV and E_{2}∼1MeV with respect to the neutron separation energy. The data are consistent with shell model c…

Full jet in quark-gluon plasma with hydrodynamic medium response

2017-04-19T10:00:00-04:00

Author(s): Yasuki Tachibana, Ning-Bo Chang, and Guang-You Qin

The authors develop a coupled jet-fluid model that includes interactions between jets and a fluid medium in a heavy-ion collision. The model treats both the effect of the medium on the jet shower as well as the back-reaction of this energy deposition on the medium itself. The authors show how the energy that is lost by a jet is deposited in and evolves with the medium, and how that deposited energy might appear in measured observables.

Author(s): A. V. Anisovich, V. Burkert, E. Klempt, V. A. Nikonov, A. V. Sarantsev, and U. Thoma
The helicity-dependent observable E for the reaction γd→ηn(p) with a spectator proton was recently measured by the A2 Collaboration at MAMI in Mainz. The data were interpreted as further evidence for a narrow resonance with spin and parity J^{P}=1/2^{+} (P_{11} wave). However, a full partial-wave an…

Theoretical study of the Ξ(1620) and Ξ(1690) resonances in Ξ_{c} →π^{+} MB decays

Author(s): Kenta Miyahara, Tetsuo Hyodo, Makoto Oka, Juan Nieves, and Eulogio Oset
Nonleptonic weak decays of Ξ_{c} into π^{+} and a meson (M)-baryon (B) final state, MB, are analyzed from the viewpoint of probing S=−2 baryon resonances, i.e., Ξ(1620) and Ξ(1690), of which spin-parity and other properties are not well known. We argue that the weak decay of Ξ_{c} is dominated by a …

With a newly improved isospin- and momentum-dependent interaction and an isospin-dependent Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck transport model, we have investigated the effects of the slope parameter L of the nuclear symmetry energy and the isospin splitting of the nucleon effective mass m_{n−p}^{*}=(m_{n}^…

Author(s): N. Nica, J. C. Hardy, V. E. Iacob, H. I. Park, K. Brandenburg, and M. B. Trzhaskovskaya
We have measured the K-shell internal conversion coefficient, α_{K}, for the 88.2-keV M4 transition from the 106-day isomer to the ground state in ^{127}Te to be 484(6). When compared with Dirac-Fock calculations of α_{K}, this result agrees well with the version of the theory that incorporates the …

One can adopt two-step G-matrix approximations for the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock (BHF) calculations. The first G matrix is to soften the bare force, and the second one is to include the high-order correlations of the interaction in medium.
