Microscopic Structure of the Intrinsic State of a Deformed Nucleus

A remarkably accurate microscopic description of the properties of strongly deformed nuclei has been achieved in terms of the alignment of the orbitals of the individual nucleons in the average deformed Nilsson potentia11,2. The main evidence for the validity of this picture has been provided by the systematic identification (cf. e.g. Ref. 3) of the Nilsson levels throughout the mass table, making use of one-particle stripping and pick-up reactions. Strong support for the model has been also found in the measurements of two-nucleon transfer reactions in which the multipole deformation associated with the Nilsson levels close to the Fermi surface is probed (cf. e.g. Refs. 4 and 5).
