    A method of parametrizing radiative strength functions for electric dipole transitions is used to calculate the spectra of photons emitted by fragments originating from the spontaneous fission of [sup 252]Cf nuclei. The LDPL-98 library of parameters, which contains data for 2000 nuclei, is...

    New analyses of spontaneous-fission gamma data from our [sup 252]Cf Gammasphere runs of 1995 and 2000 have identified new transitions and given improved transition energy and intensity values for known transitions in even-odd fission-product nuclei just beyond the 82-neutron closed shell. New...

Q.; Zhu, S. J.; Ter-Akopian, G. M.; Oganessian, Yu. Ts.; Daniel, A. V.; Rasmussen, J. O.; Lee, I. Y.; Cole, J. D.; Drigert, M. W.; Ma, W.-C. // Physics of Atomic Nuclei;Jul2001, Vol. 64 Issue 7, p1157 

    The levels in [sup 162]Gd were identified in spontaneous fission studies. Its transition energies are remarkably similar to those in [sup 160]Gd. From that work, an analysis of yrast bands in even-even proton to neutron-rich Ba to Pb nuclei led to the discovery of a new phenomenon, shifted...

    The fission barriers of the nuclei [SUP256]Fm and [SUP258]Fm are investigated in a fully microscopic way up to the scission point. The analysis is based on the constrained Hartree-Fock-Bogolyubov theory and Gogny's D1S force. The quadrupole, octupole, and hexadecapole moments, as well as the...
