Abstract [en]

The alpha decay of Th-222 populating the low-lying J(pi) = 3(-) state, and also a proposed 1(-) state, in Ra-218 has been observed. The observations suggest an excitation energy of 853 keV for the 1(-) state, which is 60 keV above the 3(-) state. The hindrance factors of these alpha decays give a possible boundary to the region of ground-state octupole deformation in the light-actinide nuclei. The relative positions of the J(pi) = 1(-) and 3(-) states suggest they are produced by an octupole-vibrational mechanism, as opposed to alpha clustering or rotations of a reflection-asymmetric octupole-deformed shape.
