Cluster model analysis of exotic decay in actinide nuclei
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The binary cluster model is used to investigate the properties of exotic structures and decays in various nuclei. A simple method is described to choose the possible clusters forming within the nucleus, ...
Search for low-spin states above the 5-α break-up threshold in 20Ne
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The study of α clustering is a well-established topic of research in nuclear physics. Recent experimental evidence has revealed the first 2+ excitation of the Hoyle state in 12C, which is known to have ...
