Fine structure in 14C cluster emission from 225Ac

Nuclear structure


A fine structure in the 14C decay of 225Ac is predicted quantitatively by accounting dynamical aspects during the disintegration process. Transitions to the excited states of the daughter nucleus are considered to be mainly directed by the Landau–Zener promotion mechanism in the region of avoided crossing levels. The level scheme is evaluated with the superasymmetric two–center shell model. The half–lives are computed considering the cluster decay as a superasymmetric fission process.
