1 Measuring octupole collectivity in 221 Rn using Coulomb excitation at MINIBALL, & SPEDE George O’Neill

2 Octupole collectivity Certain nucleon configurations have reflection asymmetry Enhanced Schiff moments due to nearly degenerate parity doublets Induce atomic electric-dipole moments Octupole moment measured through E3 transition [1] ‘Octupole collectivity in 220 Rn and 224 Ra’, L. Gaffney, PhD thesis, 2012

3 221-Radon Parity doublet splitting only possible in odd mass systems [2] Theoretically, asymmetry Z=88, N=134 Good beam achievable at ISOLDE Internal conversion dominates some transitions vs gamma decay 221 Rn, 1x10 5 ion/s 48 hour beam time 120 Sn target, 2 mg/cm 2

4 REX-ISOLDE Radioactive ion beam – Radioactive beam EXperiment at ISOLDE Protons incident on UC X target Accelerates up to 3.0 MeV/u

5 MINIBALL Coulomb excitation Gamma detector array with DSSSD 144 segments of encapsulated Ge Currently offline for HIE-ISOLDE upgrade

6 Results so far ↓ ↓ ↓ Kβ 1 ↓ Kα 1, Kα 2 ↓ 221 Rn, 6x10 3 ion/s 30 hour beam time 120 Sn target, 2 mg/cm 2

7 Results so far ↓ ↓ ↓ Kβ 1 ↓ Kα 1, Kα 2 ↓ 7/2+, 0 keV keV 22.5 keV 7/2+, 0 keV keV keV

8 SPEDE - motivation SPectrometer for Electron DEtection Si detector in backwards geometry Allows full picture Can also be used for other useful physics

9 SPEDE – where we are Beam time applied for at JYFL Detector ordered Preamplifiers tested On track for installation Q4 2014

10 Summary Some initial results for 221 Rn SPEDE will enhance knowledge of nucleus Should have first results by ‘Octupole collectivity in 220 Rn and 224 Ra’, L. Gaffney, PhD thesis, ‘Reflection-asymmetric shapes in odd-A actinide nuclei’, Nucl. Phys. A529 (1991), S. Ćwiok, W. Nazarewicz 3.‘Combined in–beam γ–ray and conversion electron spectroscopy with radioactive ion beams’, P. Papadakis, J. Pakarinen (JYFL proposal)
