Abstract
The yrast superdeformed band in Zn-61 has been established using Si-28(Ar-3 6, 2pn)Zn-61 and Ca-40(Si-29, 2 alpha)Zn-61 fusion-evaporation reactions. T he excitation energy of this band was determined via two transitions that l ink this band to the normally deformed states. Lifetime analysis of this ba nd resulted in a quadrupole moment of Q(t) = 3.0 +/- (0.5)(0.4)e b, which c orresponds to a deformation of beta(2) = 0.50+/-(0.07)(0.06). A comparison of the J((2)) dynamical moments of inertia of the yrast superdeformed band in Zn-61 with those in Zn-60 shows a nearly complete blocking of the observ ed alignment in Zn-60, indicating that T=0 proton-neutron pair correlations may be present in Zn-60.
