Abrupt changes in alpha-decay systematics as a manifestation of collective nuclear modes
2010 (English)In: Physical Review C. Nuclear Physics, ISSN 0556-2813, E-ISSN 1089-490X, Vol. 81, no 6, 064319- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
An abrupt change in alpha-decay systematics around the N = 126 neutron shell closure is discussed. It is explained as a sudden hindrance of the clustering of the nucleons that eventually form the a particle. This is because the clustering induced by the pairing mode acting upon the four nucleons is inhibited if the configuration space does not allow a proper manifestation of the pairing collectivity.
