Abstract [en]

Gamma-ray transitions have been identified for the first time in the extremely neutron-deficient T-z = 1 nuclide Xe-110 and the energies of the three lowest excited states in the ground-state band have been deduced. A level scheme has also been constructed for the proton-unbound, T-z = 3/2 nuclide I-109, exhibiting band structures built on g(7/2) and h(11/2) states in a weakly deformed, triaxial nucleus. In addition, a third band is proposed to be bui It oil a g(7/2) orbital coupled to an octupole-vibrational phonon of the Te-108 core. The results were obtained in a recoil-decay tagging experiment using the Ni-58(Fe-54,2n/p2n) reaction at a beam energy of 195 MeV. The experiment was performed using the highly efficient JUROGAM y-ray spectrometer in conjunction with the RITU gas-filled recoil separator and the GREAT focal -plane spectrometer. The results on Xe-110 establish a breaking of the normal trend of increasing first excited 2(+) and 4(+) level energies as a function of decreasing neutron number as the N = 50 major shell gap is approached for the neutron-deficient Xe isotopes. This unusual feature is suggested to be an effect of enhanced collectivity, possibly arising from isoscalar n-p interactions becoming increasingly important close to the N = Z line. Features in the low-lying levels of Te-106 and I-109, showing similar trends, are also discussed.
