Isoscalar E0, E1, E2, and E3 strength in Mo94 Academic Article uri icon


  • © 2016 American Physical Society. Isoscalar giant resonances in Mo94 have been studied with inelastic scattering of 240 MeV α particles at small angles including 0°. All of the expected energy-weighted sum rule (EWSR) for the isoscalar E0 resonance was found (112%). A significant portion of the EWSR was found for the isoscalar E1 (83%), E2 (61%), and the high-energy octupole E3 (46%) resonances. The strength distributions are compared with the predictions from Hartree-Fock random-phase-approximation calculations with the KDE0v1 Skyrme-type interaction.
