Abstract

Recents measurements [1] of the nuclear binding energy (B) of exotic sodium isotopes have shown that the two neutron separation energy B2n, defined as B2 (A,Z)= B(A,Z)−B(A−2,Z) displays a sudden discontinuity for the mass number A=31 (see fig.1) which is very similar to those observed in the rare earth region. In the latter case this phenomenon has been explained in terms of a shape transition of the intrinsic ground state.
