Decay Studies of N≃Z Nuclei

  • Ernst Roeckl
Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 651)

Abstract

The decay properties of N≃Z nuclei are reviewed, and their relation to nuclear–structure, astrophysics and fundamental physics is described. Focussing on direct charged–particle radioactivity and β decay, particular emphasis is put on direct proton, two–proton and α emission, superallowed 0+ to 0+ β transitions, the Gamow–Teller resonance occurring in β decays near 100Sn, β-delayed proton emission of 57Zn, γ-delayed proton emission of 58Cu, and isomer spectroscopy of 74Kr and 94Ag.
