Abstract
Gamma decays from excited states in the T-z= -1/2 nucleus Fe-51 have been o bserved for the first time. The differences in excitation energies as compa red with those of the mirror partner, Mn-51, have been interpreted in terms of Coulomb effects and the resulting Coulomb energy differences (CED) can be understood intuitively in terms of particle-alignment effects. A new CED effect has been observed, in which different CED trends have been measured for each signature of the rotational structures that characterize these mi nd-f(7/2) shell nuclei. Large-scale fp-shell model calculations have been u sed to compute the trends of the CED as a function of spin. The result of c omparing these calculations with the data demonstrates an ability to reprod uce the fine details of the Coulomb effects with a precision far greater th an has been previously achieved.
