High-spin states and rotational coexistence in 25 Mg


Journal Article

New high spin states in 25Mg have been located above the neutron threshold using the 12C(14N, pγ)25Mg reaction at E=23.5 MeV. The members of the ground state rotational band (Kπ= 5 2+ have been tentatively identified up to 15 2+. The yrast 15 2+ (not a member of the ground state band) and 17 2+ states have also been tentatively assigned. These results support the interpretation of the new 17 2+ state and the previously known yrast 13 2+ state as fully aligned prolate configurations, i.e., prolate particle-hole states with K=I and γ=-120°. © 1987.
