Quadrupole decay strength of the M 1 scissors mode

Conference Paper

The E2/M1 multipole mixing ratio δ1→2 of the 1sc+→21+ transition of Gd was determined using results from high-statistics photon scattering. This provides a possibility for a new approach on the search of Jsc+ members of the rotational band built on the scissors mode. By application of Alaga's rule, which is justifiable as 156Gd is a well-deformed rotor with good K quantum number, a transition strength of B(E2;2sc+→01+)=0.034(13) W.u. is estimated.
