Fission barrier height and its angular-momentum dependence have been measured for the first time in the nucleus with the atomic number greater than 100. The entry distribution method, which can determine the excitation energy at which fission starts to dominate the decay process, was applied to $$^{254}$$No. The fission barrier of $$^{254}$$No was found to be 6.6 MeV at zero spin, indicating that the $$^{254}$$No is strongly stabilized by the nuclear shell effects.

The decay of a $$K^{pi}$$ = 8$$^{-}$$ isomer in $$^{244}$$Pu and the collective band structure populating the isomer are studied using deep inelastic excitations with $$^{47}$$Ti and $$^{208}$$Pb beams, respectively. Precise measurements of $$M1/E2$$ branching ratios in the band confirm a clean 9/2$$^-$$[734]$$_{nu}$$$$otimes$$7/2$$^+$$[624]$$_{nu}$$ for the isomer, validating the systematics of K$$^{pi}$$ = 8$$^{-}$$ two-quasineutron isomers observed in even-$$Z$$, $$N$$ = 150 isotones. These isomers around the deformed shell gap at $$N$$ = 152 provide critical benchmarks for theoretical predictions of single-particle energies in this gateway region to superheavy nuclei.

Identification of deformed intruder states in semi-magic $$^{70}$$Ni

The neutron-rich isotope $$^{70}$$Ni was produced by multi-nucleon transfer reactions of $$^{70}$$Zn in the Argonne National Laboratory, and an in-beam $$gamma$$-ray experiment were performed using the GRETINA array. The $$2^+_2$$ and $$4^+_2$$ levels of $$^{70}$$Ni were observed for the first time. Those levels are regarded as large deformed states associated with proton excitation from the $$f_{7/2}$$ orbit because they cannot be reproduced by a shell-model calculation assuming a small valence space without $$f_{7/2}$$. A theoretical analysis based on the Monte Carlo shell model published in 2014 indicates that those levels corresponds to a prolate deformed band. The present result demonstrates the occurrence of shape coexistence in neutron-rich Ni isotopes other than a known case of $$^{68}$$Ni, and confirms the predictive power of the Monte Carlo shell-model calculation.

Fission barrier of superheavy nuclei and persistence of shell effects at high spin; Cases of $$^{254}$$No and $$^{220}$$Th

Fission barrier heights of a shell-stabilized superheavy nucleus $$^{254}$$No have been determined as a function of spin up to 19$$hbar$$ through the measured distribution of entry points of $$gamma$$ deexcitations in the excitation energy vs. spin plane. The fission barrier height of $$^{254}$$No was determined to be 6.0 MeV at spin 15$$hbar$$, and 6.6 MeV at spin 0$$hbar$$ by extrapolation. This demonstrates that the shell effect actually enlarges the fission barrier in such heavy nuclei and keeps the barrier high even at high spin.

Exploring the stability of super heavy elements; First measurement of the fission barrier of $$^{254}$$No

Fission barrier heights of $$^{254}$$No have been determined through the entry distribution method. The entry distribution is the initial distribution of excitation energy and spin from which the $$gamma$$ deexcitation starts in the fusion-evaporation reaction. The initial distribution is extracted from measured $$gamma$$-ray multiplicity and total $$gamma$$-ray energy. This paper describes the details of the entry distribution method, and reports the first determination of the fission barrier heights of $$^{254}$$No, which is the heaviest nucleus whose fission barrier has been measured.

The available experimental information on $$^{34}$$P has been greatly increased through the analysis of $$gamma$$ decays in coincidence with protons from the interaction of an $$^{18}$$O beam at 24 MeV with an $$^{18}$$O target. Light charged particles from the reaction were detected with Microball, and multiple $$gamma$$ ray coincidences with Gammasphere. Many newly observed $$gamma$$ transitions have been identified and placed in the level scheme. Additionally, for most states, spins have been assigned based on measured $$gamma$$ ray angular distributions while parities were inferred from lifetimes determined through Doppler-broadened line-shape analysis. Most of the states observed have been interpreted in terms of shell-model calculations using the WBP-a and SDPF-NR interactions having one particle in the 0$$f$$$$_{7/2}$$ or 1$$p$$$$_{3/2}$$ orbital. The two calculations agree almost equally well with the data resulting in root-mean-square differences of about 200 keV. However, two of a few high-lying states may be associated with stretched $$pi$$$$f$$$$_{7/2}$$ $$otimes$$ $$nu$$$$f$$$$_{7/2}$$ states, but the calculations over-predict their energies by 2-3 MeV. Furthermore, a newly observed long-lived 7919-keV state is established for which no explanation is available at present.

Excited intruder states in $$^{32}$$Mg

Excited states in $$^{32}$$Mg have been observed from a $$beta$$-decay experiment of $$^{32}$$Na which was performed at National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory in Michigan State University. The 2.1 MeV state proposed previously was denied because the corresponding $$gamma$$ ray is found to be located elsewhere. New level scheme is proposed and compared with the Monte Carlo shell model by JAEA. The ground state of $$^{32}$$Na appears to be a negative parity states from the decay pattern and the calculation. We suggested that the configuration of the states which are strongly populated via the $$beta$$ decay is 3p-3h, since the ground state of the parent nucleus is most likely 2p-3h character.
