Abstract

The matrix element of the anomalously low-energy (3.5±0.5 eV) nuclear M1 transition between the first excited state and the ground state of the 229Th nucleus is determined with allowance for the Coriolis mixing of the rotational bands. The upper and lower limits on the lifetime of the level with respect to an isomeric transition are given. A method is proposed for measuring the half-life of the low-lying isomer 229mTh directly in a 233U sample.
