Configuration Dependent or Quadrupole Pairing R. E. Griffin, A. D. Jackson and A. B. Volkov, Phys. Lett. 36B, 281 (1971). Suggested that Δ pp ≈ Δ oo >> Δ op for Actinide Nuclei where 0 2 + states were observed in (p,t) that were not pairing- or β-vibrations. Suppose there are n prolate and n oblate degenerate levels at the Fermi Surface; Assume that each pairing matrix element is the same for the same type -a BUT the prolate-oblate matrix elements are very weak –εa Then if the prolate n*n matrix is A, the oblate matrix is also A The matrix for the total system is; A εA εA A Then there are (2n-2) states with ZERO energy and 2 states with energies E 1,2 = -(1 ± ε) na (2n-2) 0 2 + 0 1 + 6/11/2014ISPUN146

THE PROBLEM for ( 3 He,n) Two Proton Stripping: 1. 1. How to get good resolution ΔE n ≈ 2 keV 2. 2. How to separate the 1 in 1000 ( 3 He,n) direct reaction events from the flood of ( 3 He,xn) fusion-evaporation events ?? THE SOLUTION: 1. 1. Use HPGe detectors having ΔE γ ≈ 2 keV 2.(i) Note that Q (3He,n) ≈ + 7 MeV E n ≈ 32 MeV Fast while Q (3He,xn) ≈ - 17 MeV E n < 6 MeV Slow (ii) To 0 + states, the ( 3 He,n) cross-section peaks at 0° while for ( 3 He,xn) all neutrons are emitted isotropically ie. the direct reaction L=0 neutrons to 0 n + states are focused at 0° While the evaporation neutrons are emitted in all directions. ISPUN14196/11/2014 We have 2 neutron transfer data to 0 2 + levels We would like 2 proton transfer data to compare

6/11/2014ISPUN1423 Summary: Why are 0 2 + states not β-Vibrations ? 1. There are no 2 phonon states [Kulp et al., PR C77, 061301 (2011)] 2. Strongly populated in 2n transfer, Weakly in 2p transfer; {a truly collective state would not have uneven properties} 3. There are Congruent states to 0 1 + built on 0 2 + Why are the 0 2 + states in N=88,90 [505]11/2 - Pairing Isomers ? 1. The coupling of the [505]11/2 - odd neutron to 0 2 + is BLOCKED 2. The back-bending frequency ħω c is NOT reduced by blocking and is therefore not involved in the monopole pairing 3. The Explanation of Griffiths, Jackson and Volkov is more than adequate
