Abstract
High-spin states in neutron-rich nuclei, populated following deep-inelastic multi-nucleon transfer, have been studied using the GAMMASPHERE array at t he LBNL, USA. A Ni-64 beam at an energy similar to 15% above the Coulomb ba rrier was incident upon a thick Pb-208 target, leading to the population of more than 130 different nuclei. The strongest channels correspond to nucle i close to the projectile and target, although transfer of up to 50 nucleon s has been observed. New high-spin states in neutron-rich Fe-60,Fe-62 and Z n-68,Zn-70,Zn-72 nuclei have been observed. Some limitations of this method of high-spin spectroscopy are discussed, including the apparent difficulty of populating odd-odd and odd-even isotopes via this type of reaction. The data have been searched for superdeformed (SD) states in the A = 190-200 r egion, but no evidence for their presence has been found.
