Shape Coexistence in 78Ni as the Portal to the Fifth Island of Inversion

Large-scale shell-model calculations predict that the region of deformation which comprises the heaviest chromium and iron isotopes at and beyond $N=40$ will merge with a new one at $N=50$ in an astonishing parallel to the $N=20$ and $N=28$ case in the neon and magnesium isotopes. We propose a valence space including the full $pf$ shell for the protons and the full $sdg$ shell for the neutrons, which represents a comeback of the the harmonic oscillator shells in the very neutron- rich regime. The onset of deformation is understood in the framework of the algebraic SU(3)-like structures linked to quadrupole dominance. Our calculations preserve the doubly magic nature of the ground state of $^{78}\mathrm{Ni}$, which, however, exhibits a well-deformed prolate band at low excitation energy, providing a striking example of shape coexistence far from stability. This new IOI adds to the four well-documented ones at $N=8$, 20, 28, and 40.
