Beta decays of 44V and 52Co Academic Article uri icon


  • We have studied the previously unknown + decay branches from 44,44mV and 52Co to particle-bound states in 44Ti and 52Fe, respectively. These intense branches populate a few states in the daughters from an excitation energy of about 1 MeV up to the isobaric analogue states at about 6 MeV. We have measured the first precise energy values for the latter states as well as the -branching ratios to all states in this excitation energy region. We have calculated the + decay of 44,44mV in the full fp shell model space as well as in a truncated space. Renormalized transition operators are constructed for the truncated space and tested against experimental data in 44V and 52Co. In general there is good agreement between theory and experiment for the half-lives, level energies and beta branches, but not all the states found are reproduced by the calculations.
