19 Microscopic description of mixed- symmetry states in nearly spherical nuclei

20 Introduction Low-lying isovector excitations are naturally predicted in the algebraic IBM-2 as mixed symmetry states. Their main signatures are relatively weak E2 and strong M1 transition to symmetric states. A. T. Otsuka, A.Arima, and Iachello, Nucl.Phys. A309, 1 (1978) B. P. van Isacker, K.Heyde, J.Jolie et al., Ann. Phys. 171, 253 (1986)

21 Definitions The low-lying states of isovector nature were considered in a geometrical model as proton- neutron surface vibrations. is in-phase (isoscalar) vibration of protons and neutrons. is out-of-phase (isovector) vibration of protons and neutrons. A. A.Faessler, R. Nojarov, Phys. Lett., B166, 367 (1986) B. R. Nojarov, A. Faessler, J. Phys. G, 13, 337 (1987)

23 Microscopic calculations Within the nuclear shell model A. F. Lisetskiy, N. Pietralla, C. Fransen, R. V. Jolos, P. von Brentano, Nucl. Phys. A677, 1000 (2000) Within the quasi-particle-phonon model (QPM) N. Lo Iudice and Ch. Stoyanov, Phys. Rev. C 62, (2000) N. Lo Iudice and Ch. Stoyanov, Phys. Rev. C 65, (2002)

24 Definition In order to test the isospin nature of 2 + states the following ratio is computed: This ratio probes: 1.The isoscalar ((2 + )<1) and 2.The isovector (B(2+)>1) properties of the 2 + state under consideration

25 The dependence of M1 and E2 transitions on the ratio G (2) /k 0 (2) in 136 Ba.

26 Structure of the first RPA phonons (only the largest components are given) and corresponding B(2 + ) ratios for 136 Ba B (2 + )

27 The values of B(2 + ) for 144 Nd

28 Explanation of the method used The quasi-particle Hamiltonian is diagonalized using the variational principle with a trial wave function of total spin JM Where ψ 0 represents the phonon vacuum state and R, P and T are unknown amplitudes; ν labels the specific excited state.

29 Explanation of the method used (2) Taking into account the fermionic structure of the phonon operator, their commutation relations read The first term corresponds to the ideal boson approximation The second one takes into account the internal fermionic structure of the phonons The second term is important in considering multi- phonon states which may violate the Pauli principle

53 Comparison to the experiment

54 Conclusions There are two modes in the low-lying quadrupole excitations – isoscalar and isovector one. The properties of these two modes are close to IBM-2 symmetric and mixed-symmetry states. The coupling of the modes leads to variety of excited states. There are well pronounced regularities of E2 and M1 transitions connecting the states. The spin degree of freedom pays a dominant role in some states, such as second 1 +.
