2 42 Ca 40 Ca Highly collective structure were found in the 40 Ca (also in 36,38 Ar) B(E2; 4 + 2 + in SD) = 170 W.u (DSAM) Deformation of the 2 + state in the superdeformed band: β 2 =0.59(9) (E. Ideguchi et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 87 2001) 40 Ca vs 42 Ca

3 B(E2) values in 42 Ca suggest smaller deformation of the of the 0 + (1837 keV) band than in the case of 40 Ca observation of GDR feeding of presumably deformed band in 42 Ca from very deformed hot 46 Ti (M.Kmiecik et al. Acta Phys. Pol. B36, 1169(2005)) moment of inertia very similar to that found for the SD-band in 40 Ca 40 Ca vs 42 Ca 42 Ca

10 Tentative level scheme of 42 Ca K. Hadyńska-Klęk et al., (Acta Phys. Pol B 42, 817 (2011))

11 If 1 - at 3885 keV… Excitation via E2(0 1 + 2 1 + ) and E3(2 1 + 1 - ) transitions Deexcitation via E1(1 - 0 2 + ) 2048 keV GOSIA calculations: B(E3; 2 1 + 1 - ) > 2.5*10 6 W.u. E2 E3 E1

12 If 1 - at 3885 keV… Excitation via E2(0 1 + 2 1 + ) and E3(2 1 + 1 - ) transitions Deexcitation via E1(1 - 0 2 + ) 2048 keV GOSIA calculations: B(E3; 2 1 + 1 - ) > 2.5*10 6 W.u. E2 E3 E1

13 Postulated interpretation We assume that the observed gamma line comes from a 2 + level placed at 2048 keV The 2 2 + state can be populated directly via E2(0 1 + 2 2 + ) Deexcitation – through E2(2 2 + 0 1 + ) with 2048 keV It was enough to reproduce the intensity of the 2048 keV gamma ray with B(E2; 2 2 + 0 1 + ) ~ 1 W.u Observation of the 376 keV line supports this scenario But... No signs of this lines in the known level scheme and previous experiments W.J. Kossler et al., Phys. Rev. 177, 1725 (1969)

14 Another unexpected effect In multi-step Coulex each additional step leads to a weaker excitation we expected more counts in the 2424 keV line than in the 1729 keV transition In the experiment, the 1729 keV line is stronger! 1729 keV = 4400 counts 2424 keV = 300 counts It seems that the 4 2 + state is populated stronger that the 2 2 + in the same band! Excitation of the presumably SD band is smaller then it was expected or… Deexcitation of 2424 keV state goes also through the 376 keV!

15 Motivation for the additional experiments - coincidences analysis was performed but is not conclusive As long as 376 and 2048 keV lines are not placed in the level scheme, the COULEX analysis results will require to make additional assumptions Also proovement of the possible superdeformation will be less convincing The aim of the additional experiments: investigation of the medium and low spin region in 42 Ca

16 Experiment @ HIL Warsaw Beam: 32 S, 1 pnA, 76 MeV Target: 12 C, 4 mg/cm 2 Reaction: 12 C( 32 S,2p) 42 Ca Cross section for 2p reaction channel: 110 mb (COMPA & PACE codes) EAGLE-II array The most important issues: - possible new level at 2048 keV - branching ratio determination of the decay lines from 2424 keV level - ray angular correlation – to assign spin and parity of the new state(s)
