Tests confirm nickel-78 is a 'doubly magic' isotope | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The stability of atoms can vary considerably from one element to the next, and also between isotopes of the same element (whose nuclei contain the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons). While many isotopes are unstable and rapidly undergo radioactive decay, certain 'magic' isotopes ...

Spin and orbital g factors with a surface δ interaction

Using an attractive surface delta interaction we obtain wave functions for two protons (or proton holes) in the ${f}_{5/2}$ and ${p}_{3/2}$ shells. We take the single-particle energies to be degenerate. We obtain the remarkable result that the $g$ factors of the lowest ${2}^{+}$ and the lowest ${4}^{+}$ states are equal to 1. We find that only the orbital part of the $g$ factors contributes\char22{}the spin part cancels out. Shell-model calculations are also performed for these same $g$ factors in a larger model space and with realistic effective interactions.

A team of researchers from the RIKEN Nishina Center for Accelerator-Based Science in Japan has demonstrated that the magic numbers 20 and 28 disappear from all neutron-rich magnesium isotopes, thereby establishing a new, larger area of nuclear deformation in the nuclear chart.

Merging of the islands of inversion at N=20 and N=28

Merging of the islands of inversion at N=20 and N=28 | Nuclear Physics | Scoop.it
The $N=20$ and $N=28$ ``islands of inversion'' are described by large scale shell model calculations with an extension of the interaction SDPF-U that makes it possible to mix configurations with different $\mathrm{N}$\hbar${}$\omega${}$ or equivalently with different numbers of particles promoted from the $sd$ shell to the $pf$ shell. It allows to connect the classical $sd$-shell calculations below $N=18$ with the $sd$ (protons)-$pf$ (neutrons) calculations beyond $N=24\char21{}26$, for all the isotopes from oxygen to sulfur, using the same interaction. For some isotopes this range contains all the nuclei between the proton and the neutron drip lines and includes the $N=20$ and $N=28$ islands of inversion. We pay particular attention to the properties of the states at fixed $\mathrm{N}$\hbar${}$\omega${}$ which turn out to be the real protagonists of the physics at $N=20$. The existence of islands of inversion or deformation are explained as the result of the competition between the spherical mean field which favors the $0$\hbar${}$\omega${}$ configurations and the nuclear correlations which favor the deformed $N$\hbar${}$\omega${}$ configurations. The magnesium chain is exceptional because in it the $N=20$ and $N=28$ islands of inversion merge, enclosing all the isotopes between $N=19$ and $N=30$. Indeed, this would be also the case for the neon and sodium chains if their drip lines would reach $N=28$.
