High-spin proton and alpha-particle emission as probes for nuclear structure

  • D. Rudolph


During recent years the nuclear decay modes of discrete prompt proton and α-particle emission from (super)deformed high-spin states have been discovered in nuclei in the vicinity of 56Ni. The latest news from experiments performed at EUROBALL and GAMMASPHERE regarding these decays are presented and discussed.
