7/2[413] rotational band and high spin states in odd-mass 115,117 Ag Academic Article uri icon


  • Twenty four and twenty two new excited states are proposed in neutron-rich 115,117 Ag, respectively. These new results came from new works in Gammasphere measuring triple- and higher-fold prompt coincidences following the spontaneous fission of 252 Cf. The 7/2[413] rotational bands are identified in 115,117 Ag, along with higher bands of uncertain structures. A doublet structure in some bands is suggestive of softness toward triaxiality.
