1
Collective properties of even- even nuclei Vibrators and rotors With three Appendices

2
What happens with both valence neutrons and protons? Case of few valence nucleons: Lowering of energies, development of multiplets. R 4/2 ~2 Vibrational modes, 1- and multi-phonon 2-particle spectra Intermediate

3
Lots of valence nucleons of both types R 4/2 ~3.33

4
B(E2; 2 + 0 + )

5
Broad perspective on structural evolution: R 4/2 Note the characteristic, repeated patterns

6
Development of collective behavior in nuclei Results primarily from correlations among valence nucleons. Instead of pure “shell model” configurations, the wave functions are mixed – linear combinations of many components. Leads to a lowering of the collective states and to enhanced transition rates as characteristic signatures. How does this happen? Consider mixing of states.

7
A illustrative special case of fundamental importance T Lowering of one state. Note that the components of its wave function are all equal and in phase Consequences of this: Lower energies for collective states, and enhanced transition rates. Lets look at the latter in a simple model.

24
Even-even Deformed Nuclei Rotations and vibrations

26
0+0+ 2+2+ 4+4+ 6+6+ 8+8+ Rotational states Vibrational excitations Rotational states built on(superposed on) vibrational modes Ground or equilibirum state

27
Systematics and collectivity of the lowest vibrational modes in deformed nuclei

28
E2 transitions in deformed nuclei Intraband --- STRONG, typ. ~ 200 W.u. in heavy nuclei Interband --- Collective but much weaker, typ. 5-15 W.u. Which bands are connected? Alaga Rules for Branching ratios

30 0

31
Experimental B(E2) values in deformed nuclei

41
How to fix the model? Note: the Alaga rules assume that each band is pure – ground or gamma, in character. What about if they MIX ?? Bandmixing formalism

42
Mixing of gamma and ground state bands

46
Axially Asymmetric Nuclei Two types: “gamma” soft (or “unstable”), and rigid

47
First: Gamma soft E ~ ( + 3 ) ~ J max ( J max + 6 ) Note staggering in gamma band energies

48
E ~ J ( J + 6 ) E ~ J ~ J ( J + ) E ~ J ( J + 1 ) Overview of yrast energies

49
“Gamma” rigid or Davydov model Note opposite staggering in gamma band energies

50
Use staggering in gamma band energies as signature for the kind of axial asymmetry

52
Appendix A on Intruder States Another form of collective mode that sometimes appears in the low lying spectrum or can even become the ground state equilibrium cofiguration

54
The basic idea behind Intruder States: a 2- particle - 2-hole excitation that costs energy but gains it back by added collectivity which increases with increasing valence nucleon number.

Appendix B on development of collectivity and lowering of collective energies by configuration mixing

61
Appendix C on energies and transition rates of 3- phonon states in terms of 2- phonon state anharmonicities
