Evidence for Three Microscopically Different Kinds of E1 Transitions in Lead-Region Nuclei

  • T. Lönnroth
Conference paper


One outstanding feature of the shell model in heavy nuclei is that within a main shell the single-particle transitions of electric dipole (E1) character are forbidden. This leads to the experimentally observed fact that the E1 transitions are usually hindered by a factor of about 10 with respect to the Weisskopf estimate. But since there is a dispersion of about two or three orders of magnitude among these hindrance factors, the isomeric E1 transitions have not been used to elucidate the mocroscopic properties of the involved states, as has been done for the E3 transitions of this nuclear region [1]. The E3 transitions often proceed via admixtures of the low-lying collective octupole state, whereas the E1 transitions usually are explained to proceed via minute admixtures of the giant dipole, or RPA 1- state [2].
