The Search for M1 Strength

  • R. S. Hicks
  • G. A. Peterson


Current knowledge of M1 transition strength in nuclei is reviewed by studying selected examples. Attention is focused primarily on inelastic electron scattering, but information obtained using other techniques is also discussed. It appears that the utility of (e,e′) as a spectroscopic tool for determining M1 strength is mainly restricted to nuclei with A<100. For nuclei below A≃40, the total measured M1 strength is in good accord with detailed shell model estimates, however, heavier nuclei show a strength deficit in comparison with model predictions.
