Ma. Riley et al., Global lifetime measurements of highly-deformed and other rotational structures in the A similar to 135 light rare-earth region: Probing the single-particle motion in a rotating potential, ACT PHY P B, 32(9), 2001, pp. 2683-2695
It has been possible, using Gammasphere plus Microball, to extract differen
tial lifetime measurements free from common systematic errors for over 15 d
ifferent nuclei (various isotopes of Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, and Sm) at high spin w
ithin a single experiment. This comprehensive study establishes the effecti
ve single-particle quadrupole moments in the A similar to 135 light rare-ea
rth region. Detailed comparisons axe made with calculations using the self-
consistent cranked mean-field theory.
