Abstract

The isotopes 96Zr and 98Zr are presently subject to intensive studies since their properties play a key role in the understanding of the rapid transition from spherical to deformed nuclear shapes at N ∼ 60. An interesting question is the strength of the subshell closures at Z = 38,40 and N = 56 and to which extent the structure of 96Zr, 98Zr and of their immediate neighbours is influenced by these shell effects. There is evidence, although limited, for closed- shell-or individual-particle character of these nuclei, but more information on the nature of the excited states, especially those with sizeable spins is desired. This is expected to help clarifying the situation with respect to the possible coexistence of spherical shapes with collective structures including deformed configurations.
