A direct determination of the nuclear ground-state spin of156Eu

  • C. Ekström

Short Note


The nuclear ground-state spin of the doubly-odd nucleus156Eu has been measured directly using ABMR techniques to be I=0, thus distinguishing between the contradicting results obtained in beta-decay and nuclear orientation measurements.
